John Terry has been ruled out of Chelsea's trip to Swansea on Tuesday on account of a knee injury.

The defender has been suffering with fluid in the knee since the clash with Portsmouth in the FA Cup at the start of January and has been playing with the problem in recent weeks.

He failed to complete Monday's training session and has joined Ramires and Frank Lampard on the sidelines.

"It's just a bone oedema that he has been carrying for some time since he collided with a post, if I am not wrong against Portsmouth, and this stops him a little bit," Blues boss Andre Villas-Boas told Chelsea TV. "It's nothing serious but something to keep an eye on. He has had an MRI before and he should be okay for Man United.

'We have a lot of positions covered of course because of our squad, we have Gary [Cahill] and David [Luiz] available and competing and hopefully we can make the right decision."
