Chelsea welcome John Terry back to Stamford Bridge
By Abigail Withey
Aston Villa skipper John Terry returned to his former club Chelsea on Sunday to support his ex-team mates during their goalless draw against Arsenal.
The 36-year-old captained his Championship team to a 3-0 victory over Barnsley on Saturday which signified the club’s first away win since March.
Goals from Albert Odomah and Keinan Davies secured the Oakwell win, and Terry helped the Villains keep a clean sheet.
However, just 24 hours after his side’s win, the centre-back was pictured at Stamford Bridge supporting his former team mates.
Chelsea welcomed back the ex-Blues captain on their official Twitter account alongside a picture of the Villa defender and stated: “Our biggest fan is in the house”.

Terry spent 22 years at the London club and won five Premier League and FA Cup titles throughout the two decades.
The former England international defender made an impressive 690 appearances where he scored 65 goals and secured 29 assists across all competitions.
The 36-year-old joined Steve Bruce’s side over the summer window in a free transfer which ties him to the club for the season.
Since joining the Midland club the newly-named skipper had featured in all eight of Villa’s Championship games so far, which has resulted in a number of disappointing draws as well as two draws and as many losses.
