The Blues skipper may have a reputation for being a no-nonsense centre-half, but he has shown that he also has a few freestyle skills in his locker

John Terry would not be the first name that springs to mind when running through a list of the most technically-gifted players at Chelsea.

The Blues skipper is very good at what he does, and has been at the top of his game for many years now.

Conte: Costa very happy at Chelsea

He is, however, renowned for being a no-nonsense centre-half. If a tackle needs to be made or a block put in, then Terry is your man.

The former England international has shown at training, though, that he boasts the guile in his locker to go with the graft.

Walking out alongside fellow defender David Luiz, you might expect the Brazil international to be the one eager to put on a show for the cameras.

You would be wrong.

The likes of Mesut Ozil, Dimitri Payet and Rafael van der Vaart have all been captured doing chewing gum keepy-uppy in the past, so Terry is in illustrious company.

It is, however, his ability to keep opponents quiet, rather than bamboozle them with his creativity, that will see him continue to push for a recall to Antonio Conte’s Premier League-leading Chelsea side.
