It’s 17 years since John Terry made his Chelsea debut - and during that time the talismanic club captain has played alongside a host of quality footballers.
But ever wondered who would make JT’s dream Chelsea XI?
Well, wonder no more. In a recent interview with Liverpool hero Jamie Carragher - brought to our attention by Chelsea’s official website - Terry named his dream line up comprised of his current and former teammates at Stamford Bridge.

Needless to say, Terry picked himself in central defence. The 35-year-old is one of only three players - along with Branislav Ivanovic and Eden Hazard - still in the current Chelsea squad. The other eight are former Blues’ stars.
Terry had to leave out some big names, though, including Thibaut Courtois, David Luiz, Cesar Azpilicueta and Juan Mata.
“I’ve never done this before!” Terry laughed. “I’m going to play 4-3-3. So we’ll say, Cech, Ivanovic, Carvalho, Ash. I’m putting myself in!
“Now this is where it gets hard… Lamps… Didier… Robben, Duffer was good, wasn’t he? But it’s got to be Hazard in that position.
“Then Makelele, plus Zola. It’s got to be him, hasn’t it? We’d be s*** at corners but we’d be all right otherwise!"
