Chelsea hero John Terry warns Blues of ‘underrated’ Leicester star ahead of FA Cup final

3 mins read

Ex-Chelsea defender John Terry appears to have previously sent a warning to his former club about a Leicester star who could be key this weekend. The two sides come together at Wembley Stadium on Saturday in the FA Cup final.

One man who could take to the pitch is Foxes’ defender Jonny Evans, who is seemingly highly thought-of by Terry.

Posting on Instagram last month, the former centre-back wrote: “How good is Jonny Evans? The most underrated defender in the Premier League.”

Terry’s thoughts came after Leicester’s 3-0 victory against Midlands rivals West Bromwich Albion in April – a game in which Evans managed to score.

The Northern-Irishman has continued that form since having also found the net in the recent 1-1 draw versus Southampton at St Mary’s.

He has been ruled out recently though, missing the last two Premier League games with a foot injury.

“You always have to speak to the players and Jonny is a warrior and if there is any way he can play – even if he is not 100% – he will be out there.

“It’s going to be a physical game so we need good physicality and running ability, if that’s hindered in any way it may make it difficult for him.”

Evans has been a key player for Leicester throughout the current campaign having made 36 appearances in all competitions.

Should he be fit enough for the weekend’s clash against Chelsea, it would be his first-ever FA Cup final appearance – only previously managing to go as far as the semi-finals with former club Manchester United.
