John Terry continues to make good progress in strained ankle ligament recovery

New, comments

Chelsea captain John Terry missed Friday's big game against Liverpool but he's working as hard as one would expect the Captain, Leader, Legend to be working to be back in time for the Arsenal match on Saturday.

He's not going to be available for Tuesday's League Cup match, but after one last session in the magic recovery pool, he claims he's feeling "much better" and hopes to be back "soon".

Late night session in the pool. My ankle is feeling much better,hopefully I will be back soon ⚽️ @chelseafc

Terry's replacement, David Luiz was not the walking calamity that many expected, but Conte reflected after the game that Chelsea still missed Terry's organizational skills, especially after conceding from a set piece for Liverpool's opener.

"I think we missed the organization [of Terry] in certain situations: free kicks, throw-ins. You must pay attention."

Perhaps against Arsenal, we'll get to have the best of both worlds, with Terry and David Luiz playing together.
