2 pros and 2 cons to John Terry starting for Chelsea against Man Utd

PRO – Presence


Much has been made of John Terry’s on the field persona; but regardless of how well he is performing or how well the team is performing – there is no argument; Chelsea’s defence is always better when JT is on the field.

The way that he marshals the defence makes the Blues immediately more solid, and often takes away the persistent threat often posed by Premier League opposition.

As Chelsea captain, Terry is a larger than life figure – and Conte must have him on the field.
