Walsall keeper Neil Etheridge has revealed that Chelsea don’t look ready for the upcoming Capital One Cup clash because they are yet to find a leader, Daily Star reports. The 25-year-old began his youth career with the Blues, spending four years with the club between 2003 and 2006, but eventually left to continue his development at Fulham. He is set to start in goal when he faces his former side, with the keeper admitting that manager Jose Mourinho is struggling because he lacks a natural leader in his squad.

“The thing which is going on with John Terry, no-one really knows what is happening,” he said.

“I look at that team and it’s a fantastic bunch of players but I don’t know how many leaders they have got out there. “They have a lot of talent with a fantastic manager, but they won’t want to come to Walsall on a Wednesday night that’s for sure.” Like he mentioned, John Terry is known to be a huge influence in the dressing room, but his future at Stamford Bridge is looking in doubt after he was dropped for a number of matches. Etheridge also took the time to praise the current club captain from his time training with the team’s youth squad as he prepared to face him tonight. Terry is believed to be set to make his return to the starting lineup after being left out for matches against Maccabi Tel Aviv and Arsenal.
