Terry On Bench vs. Everton

Saturday, March 12

Chelsea announced Terry is among the subs for Saturday's FA Cup clash with Everton. 

On Friday, Blues boss Guus Hiddink said Terry will be in the squad for Saturday's FA Cup match, having "trained well and intensely the last two days."

Terry Is Iconic Face of Chelsea's Defence

The 35-year-old has been a rock in Chelsea's defence since making his debut in 1998 and continues to play at a high level despite his age. He and Gary Cahill led the west London club to the best defensive record of the 2014-15 campaign (32 goals conceded), a big factor in the Blues' run to the title, per the Premier League.

While Chelsea haven't enjoyed similar success in 2015-16, the veteran club skipper remains a key component of the defence, both as a player and as a leader. 

The Blues don't have a ton of depth in the central areas, as Terry, Cahill and Kurt Zouma are the only centre-backs with significant Premier League experience in the squad.

Zouma suffered a knee injury in early February that will keep him sidelined for the rest of the season, so Hiddink has been low on options in Terry's absence.
