John Terry showed his creative side after the Chelsea defender celebrated his 15th anniversary as Blues captain on Instagram.

The former England skipper has been handed a watching brief in recent months after Antonio Conte settled on Cesar Azpilicueta, Gary Cahill and David Luiz as his back three.

Chelsea were 3-1 winners against title rivals Manchester City on Saturday afternoon thanks to goals from Diego Costa, Eden Hazard and Willian at the Etihad Stadium.

The west London outfit are sitting at the top of the Premier League table and three points clear of second-placed Arsenal.

And Terry reflected on 15 years as Chelsea captain after the 35-year-old posted the above photo on his Instagram page:

Chelsea will host West Bromwich Albion in their next Premier League game at Stamford Bridge on Sunday afternoon.

The west London outfit haven’t lost a Premier League fixture since a 3-0 defeat by Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium in September.
