Terry watched from the sidelines as Chelsea earned a 4-2 win despite being pegged back twice by Mauricio Pochettino’s side on Saturday evening.
However, goals from Nemanja Matic and Eden Hazard as well as a brace from Willian proved too much for Tottenham, who scored through Harry Kane and Dele Alli.
Chelsea will be looking to go seven points clear at the top of the Premier League on Tuesday evening, by producing a repeat of their reverse fixture against Southampton that saw Chelsea win 2-0 at St. Mary’s Stadium.
However, Spurs could capitalise on any slip up by Chelsea on Wednesday evening, as they travel to Selhurst Park to face Crystal Palace.
