Chelsea will miss Terry - Ferguson

Sir Alex Ferguson says Chelsea will miss John Terry during his suspension, as his Man Utd team prepare to play the league leaders.

Terry is banned from playing for the club for the next three games for using racist language in a game last season.

"Players who have been at the club for a number of years like Terry, [Ashley] Cole, [Frank] Lampard and [Petr] Cech give them stability," said Ferguson.

"Continuity with their kind of experience must help the dressing room. Terry will be a loss for them because he has been such a dominating figure. He is their captain, he has experience and he can be a ruthless defender. His presence a lot of the time was the most important thing for them. You will always miss a player like that."
