Napoli v Chelsea: manager Andre Villas-Boas may risk John Terry in Champions League despite knee blow
Such is Chelsea’s desperate need for leadership that John Terry’s wounded knee could be risked against one of the most formidable attacks in Europe, Napoli’s scalpel-sharp trident of Edinson Cavani, Marek Hamsik and Ezequiel Lavezzi.
I will leave it as late as possible and make a decision on him after training in Naples,” said Andre Villas-Boas, who faces the defining moment of a darkening season on Tuesday.
Leadership questions plague Villas-Boas, from his captain’s fitness to his choice of the right man to lead the attack. Chelsea’s manager last night warned Fernando Torres that he was now in a straight fight with Didier Drogba and Romelu Lukaku for the central attacking role.
