Visual Guide to A Potential Chelsea Center-Back Crisis

News out of Cobham yesterday was of John Terry having to limp out of the open training session with an apparent "tweak" of his Achilles. I'm not sure how you manage to pinch that tendon by blocking a shot, but JT somehow did it.

Now, the injury "should not" be a big worry and the Captain "should" be able to face Spurs on Thursday...BUT if he can't go, the center of the Chelsea defense may be in an even bigger pickle than what has recently become normal.

While Alex has been sent to the coal mines / gulags of Siberia, David Luiz had to miss the Wigan game as well through a knee injury. That leaves Santa Ivan the Generous (handing out defensive mistakes to ALL the little boys and girls of the opposition), Sam "Feel-Good Story" Hutchinson, and a basketful of budding stars from the U-18s as the only truly fully fit center backs in the squad.

Not. Good.

That alone should be motivation enough to keep an eye on this potentially dangerous situation, but here's a visual guide to help you out as well:
