John Terry To Miss Everton Match

New, comments

I'm sure we'd all like to wallow in self pity after the 3-3 draw against Manchester United, but we have to keep looking forward, and we've got another important match coming up. Andre Villas-Boas isn't exactly give us good news - John Terry hasn't recovered from his knee injury, and nor has Ramires. However, there's a chance we get reinforcements anyway:

In light of a horrendous cameo by Oriol Romeu, it would seem that John Obi Mikel's return is important, but it becomes less of a factor should Chelsea switch to the 4-2-3-1. Terry's absence is obviously a blow, but the Gary Cahill-David Luiz partnership looked fairly good against United, so I wouldn't be too fussed about that. Lampard getting into a match would be pretty handy as well. It shouldn't be long until we're at full strength again, at any rate.
