Terry expects to return for run-in

Chelsea captain John Terry is hoping to be back playing within a month after undergoing knee surgery.

The 31-year-old defender played through the pain after initially suffering the problem at the start of last month, but went under the knife last week.

He told The Sun: "The operation went well and I'm feeling really good."

He added: "The surgeon has shaved off a bit of bone in my right knee that was rubbing and causing a lot of swelling.

"We're all confident the operation has solved the problem and it is looking good for a quick return.

"The medical staff say four to six weeks before I can play again. But, hopefully, it might be sooner.

"I'll definitely be back before the end of the season to help the team in the Premier League run-in and for the Euros."
