Terry waits on injury as Dzeko sends out message

Chelsea will learn today the full extent of the knee injury suffered by John Terry in yesterday's 1-1 draw with Liverpool when he undergoes an MRI scan. Terry, right, who opened the scoring, was taken off on a stretcher after an accidental collision with Luis Suarez, who also equalised for Liverpool.

Meanwhile, Manchester City striker Edin Dzeko told his manager last night that "the goals are my message" as his seventh strike of the season pressed his case for a starting place. Dzeko's goal in the 88th helped City to a 2-1 win against Tottenham Hotspur.

Roberto Mancini said: "He [Dzeko] is not happy. A player who is happy on the bench does not exist." City did not dismiss reports that Mario Balotelli, who was not in the squad yesterday, may be heading out of the club, possibly bound for AC Milan.

Elsewhere, Mark Clattenburg is not expected to be named on the referees' list for next weekend's fixtures when it is released today. MORE

Celtic back down to earth with draw

Celtic were knocked off the top of the Scottish Premier League yesterday after a 1-1 draw at home to St Johnstone. Fresh from his goal against Barcelona in midweek, Tony Watt nodded the hosts in front, only for Nigel Hasselbaink to level the scores in the 77th minute. MORE

Nolan returns to haunt Newcastle

Kevin Nolan grabbed the only goal against his former club as West Ham snatched all three points at Newcastle. "It was a perfect scenario for me to score the winner," said Nolan. "It was quite emotional." The win takes West Ham up to sixth in the Premier League. MORE

Opinion: James Lawton

Liverpool, buoyed by another strike from – who else? – Luis Suarez, not only started to play immeasurably better football; they also looked distinctly like, well, Liverpool. MORE
