Terry remains sidelined


John Terry will miss Saturday's Premier League clash with Southampton due to a hamstring injury.

Terry was injured during Chelsea's 5-1 defeat of Newcastle in February 13 and sat out the Champions League defeat to Paris-Saint Germain and FA Cup victory over Manchester City.

He has failed to recover from the problem and will miss this weekend's game, while Guus Hiddink has revealed he is unlikely to be risked when Chelsea travel to Norwich City on Tuesday.

"John Terry won't be fit, he is still undergoing treatment. Every now and then he goes in the gym and does his exercises but he is not fit," Hiddink told his pre-match press conference.

"We need to be careful with him and this type of injury.

"When you have something in the hamstring you think as a player or a manager that it appears to be good but you must be careful and I am in favour of waiting even when everyone - including the player - says he is fit. I [prefer to] leave it three days more.

"We have Norwich on Tuesday and we will see if he is available for Stoke next weekend."
