Chelsea captain John Terry 'gutted' to miss PSG Champions League match

Alison Bender tells you what to look forward to in the upcoming UEFA Champions League clash between Chelsea and PSG.

Chelsea captain John Terry has confirmed that he will miss the second leg of the round-of-16 tie against Paris Saint-Germain after failing to recover from a hamstring injury.

Terry, 35, has missed the club's last five matches in all competitions -- including the 2-1 first leg defeat to PSG in Paris -- after limping off during last month's 5-1 Premier League win over Newcastle.

Interim Blues manager Guus Hiddink had said after Chelsea's 1-1 home draw with Stoke on Saturday that Terry was unlikely to recover in time to face the Ligue 1 leaders, and the Blues captain trained away from the rest of the squad at Cobham on Tuesday.

Speaking at last week's London Football Awards, where he collected an award for outstanding contribution to London football, Terry had said he was targeting a return against PSG at Stamford Bridge.

But writing on Instagram on Tuesday, he said: "I'm gutted to be missing the PSG game. It's so frustrating missing any game, but these big Champions League nights at the Bridge are unbelievable, and it hurts as a player not to be involved.

"I have thrown everything at my injury trying to get back fit, but sometimes you have to let the injury settle, and thankfully I'm on the mend and hope to be back soon."

Chelsea welcome PSG to Stamford Bridge on Wednesday for the third time in as many years in the Champions League knockout stage.
