Chelsea FC captain, John Terry is a serious doubt for the game with Liverpool on Friday after he suffered an injury late into his side’s 2-2 draw with Swansea City sunday.

The 35-year-old will have scans today to assess the damage after he fell to the ground in agony on the final whistle.

His injury came as Chelsea were held to a draw at the Liberty Stadium, despite two goals from Diego Costa, and Antonio Conte addressed his defensive situation after the game.

“I don’t know the extent of Terry’s injury,” he said at the post-match news conference. “Tomorrow we will see the situation with his ankle. He is a warrior! And I’m not worried.”

Conte left £32m defender David Luiz on the bench, but he is expected to start against Liverpool while Chelsea’s other new signing Marcos Alonso was also an unused substitute.

Chelsea took the lead through Diego Costa but went behind after conceding two goals in the space of two minutes after Thibaut Courtois conceded a penalty, converted by Gylfi Sigurdsson, before Leroy Fer controversially put Swansea ahead.

Fer appeared to foul Cahill in the build-up to his goal and Conte admitted he felt the game should have been stopped for a free-kick to Chelsea.

“The first goal, we must improve in some situations,” Conte added. “For the second goal I think everyone can see the double foul on Cahill.”

“It was a great mistake but I also want to say this could happen to one side or the other side. I don’t want to complain about this.”

Chelsea now face a testing schedule with Liverpool, Leicester City and Arsenal up next for Antonio Conte’s men.
