Chelsea boosted with club star ready to return for vital PSG clash

Chelsea star John Terry has revealed that he is aiming to make his injury return in time for the vital Champions League second-leg clash with Paris Saint-Germain, Express reports.

The 35-year-old picked up a hamstring injury during the 5-1 win over Newcastle United and has not featured since, with Branislav Ivanovic moving into the centre-back role alongside Gary Cahill.

Terry admitted that he is hoping to be back in time for the European clash in order to help his side overturn a 2-1 deficit from the away leg, but could even make a return against Stoke City this weekend.

“(PSG is) the target. I may be involved in some capacity at the weekend, but we’re just taking it day by day,” he said.

“I had a good, positive day (on Thursday) but it could flair up so I’m just taking it slowly.”

However, his future at Stamford Bridge is now in huge jeopardy following recent speculation that the board have yet to open talks over the possibility of a contract extension.

The Blues have been on a good run of form since the arrival of interim boss Guus Hiddink, winning three consecutive league matches in a row and are yet to register their first league defeat.
