John Terry has taken to social media to play down the seriousness of the hamstring injury he picked up during Chelsea’s 5-1 win over Newcastle United on Saturday.

The veteran centre-half was substituted before half-time at Stamford Bridge after picking up the muscular injury, which leaves him as a doubt heading into Tuesday’s Champions League showdown with Paris Saint-Germain.

However, the former England captain used his personal Instagram account to reveal that he is due to have a scan on his leg on Sunday and is hopeful that the injury is not too serious.

Terry posted the picture above on the photo-sharing app on Sunday morning and wrote: “Great win and performance yesterday. Well done @_pedro17_ ⚽️⚽️ @diego.costa ⚽️ @willianborges88 ⚽️@bertrandtraore10

“Having a scan today and hoping my hamstring isn’t too bad @chelseafc”
