Chelsea star: I hope Antonio Conte doesn’t pick me in his starting XI
John Terry hopes he doesn’t get back into Antonio Conte’s starting XI.
The Blues skipper was ruled out of Chelsea’s win against Tottenham yesterday after suffering a gluteal muscle injury.
Terry, facing a second spell on the sidelines, has not started since the 2-2 draw against Swansea in September.
Since Terry’s injury, Chelsea have opted to switch to a three-at-the-back system and have won seven games on the spin, conceding just one goal.
And the former England star has revealed he doesn’t mind watching from afar.
“In the best possible way, this season, and it’s going to sound crazy, but if I don’t get back in the team it means that Chelsea are winning, and at the minute we are not conceding goals, it possibly means we’re going to win the league,” said Terry.
“In the nicest way, I hope I don’t get back into the team, because we carry on winning football matches.”
