While that prompted an outpouring of joyous emotion, his mood was wrecked within 15 minutes when Ramires nudged Luis Suárez in the back and the Uruguayan fell on to Terry’s outstretched right leg.
The defender’s knee took the striker’s weight and buckled as he fell to the ground. Terry was left thumping the turf in agony before medical staff were called on to the pitch.
The 31-year-old departed on a stretcher with his head in his hands and was still undergoing treatment in the medics’ room within Stamford Bridge as the game edged beyond the hour. He will be scanned at a hospital on Monday morning, if the swelling on the knee has subsided sufficiently, and an assessment of the damage to the ligaments will follow.
“He’ll have the MRI scan and then we’ll understand the full extent,” said Roberto Di Matteo, the Chelsea manager. “There’s concern, certainly. We just got him back into the team after the ban and it had been great seeing him out there.
“We hope it’s not a serious injury but we’ll see. When a player reacts like that, it’s a concern and he’s still in pain now. He’d started the game very well, showing all the qualities he has as well as his experience and influence. It’s a real shame but we’ll find out tomorrow if it’s long-term.”
Terry required exploratory surgery on his right knee in February, having initially bruised the joint when colliding with a post in an FA Cup third-round tie against Portsmouth, an injury which ruled him out for six weeks. But this latest setback was freakish rather than an indication of any underlying weakness in the leg. Suárez expressed his condolences to Terry, tweeting: “Hugs to Terry, I hope it’s nothing serious.”
Although damage to the medial ligaments could prompt anything up to a three-month absence, a rupture of a cruciate would require a longer lay-off leaving Chelsea, who have failed to keep a clean sheet in eight matches and are three points behind Manchester United in the title race, fretting over the prognosis.
Di Matteo tried to allay fears that Chelsea’s three-match winless blip could develop into the same mid-season slump that had undone their sides overseen by Luiz Felipe Scolari, Carlo Ancelotti and André Villas-Boas in three of the past four seasons.
“We’re in much better shape than in previous years and still very close to our best,” said the Italian.
“We’re still in the mix and we’re still in a good momentum. We’ve won the Cup and the Champions League recently but maybe the amount of games you play has an effect.”
Di Matteo acknowledged Chelsea had paid a price for missing opportunities while ahead. “It was crucial to kill the game off,” he said. “We had the chances to do that but we missed opportunities, the goalkeeper made some great saves and we didn’t manage that second goal.”
