Terry playing in the Final

Chelsea captain John Terry has recovered from his ankle injury in time to play in the Carling Cup final against Arsenal on Sunday.

The 26-year-old was expected to miss the game after damaging ankle ligaments in the Champions League tie at Porto.

The England skipper was carried off after seven minutes and at first the injury was thought to be serious.

But a club statement said: "The speed of Terry's recovery has surprised the club's medical department."

News conference: Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho

Club doctor Bryan English said the England defender had "ruptured an ankle ligament" against Porto and left the stadium on crutches.

Terry had an MRI scan on Thursday and was able to walk on the leg the same day, although English said on Friday he felt Terry's injury would take "five more days" to fully recover from.

But English has now revealed that on Saturday Terry "felt a big improvement in his ankle and requested that the medical department performed a fitness test".

Terry passed the test and then took part in a full training session, paving the way for him to get the green light to play at the Millennium Stadium.

English added: "I have apologised to manager Jose Mourinho for providing him with misleading information that lead to his statements in relation to John Terry's injury yesterday."

Surely it's Jose winding up Wenger?

I really don't understand this. You are taking a big risk playing Terry in the Carling Cup against our reserve team, when you have a vital games in the Champions League, Premiership and FA Cup coming up.

Out of all these remaining fixtures, tomorrow's game is probably your least important.

Desperate for a defender. Good odds on him doing some serious damage if he's stupid enough to play while not 100%.

I agree with Alibey to a degree. Ankle ligaments can take up to 6 weeks to heal properly and unless they heal fully, he could risk worse injury and permanent damage. If he's taking pain killers he could probably play but the long term effect will mean weak ligaments .

Although, knowing J.T. he'd play with two broken legs if he thought he could , and would probably still win man of the match.

maybe the initial fears about his injury were grossly over exagerated so as to give "le arse" a glimmer of hope! The old mind games. Anyway, this is a game we can't win, but must win! I think it will give us a great boost into the homeward leg of the season

Your spot on there Scott. If we win it'll be........ Arsenal youngsters put up brave fight against Chelsea Superstars and trying to compare us to David and Goliath.

But you can guarantee Chelsea will outsing those north london muppets the whole game.

UP THE CHELS!!

hmm - this sounds dodgy to me, could this be terrys bullishness plus some cortizone or whatever method of pain dulling playing through the injury?

if anyone steps on his ankle today, JT will be out for the rest of the season

i dont like it, basically i dont believe his ligament has miraculously healed.

worried now. great.
