Terry misses training ahead of PSG clash

08 March 2016, 20:42

London - Chelsea captain John Terry remains doubtful for Wednesday's Champions League clash with Paris Saint-Germain after missing Tuesday's final pre-match training session.

Terry, 35, sustained a hamstring injury during his side's 5-1 Premier League win over Newcastle United on February 13 and has not featured since.

He did not take part in Tuesday's group training session at Chelsea's Cobham training base and was reported to be working alone in a bid to prove his fitness.

With Kurt Zouma sidelined by a serious knee injury, Chelsea have lined up with Branislav Ivanovic and Gary Cahill at centre-back in recent matches.

Striker Diego Costa did take part in training, having missed Saturday's 1-1 draw at home to Stoke City as a precaution due to a minor tendon problem.

Kenedy and Pedro Rodriguez, who have been troubled by groin and hamstring problems respectively, were also present.

PSG lead 2-1 ahead of the second leg of the last 16 tie, which represents the third season in succession that the teams have met in the Champions League knockout phase.

Chelsea beat PSG on away goals in the 2013-14 quarter-finals, but the French champions claimed their revenge in the last 16 last season via the same method.
