John Terry to lift Trophy for Chelsea

Chelsea's manager, Antonio Conte has revealed that Chelsea captain John Terry will lift the Premier League trophy on Sunday, despite barely featuring this season.

The Blues won the title last Friday but must wait until after their final game of the season against Sunderland on Sunday to get their hands on the silverware.

There was some uncertainty over who would have the honour of lifting the trophy at Stamford Bridge following a season in which the armband has been shared around.

Gary Cahill, who had started every Premier League game this season before the mid-week 4-3 win over Watford, has been skippering the side when Terry hasn’t played.

Meanwhile N’Golo Kante has been recognised as the team’s standout player having won both the PFA and FWA Players of the Season awards this season.

However it will fall to Terry, who will leave Chelsea at the end of the season (and possibly retire), to do the honours.

‘I’m looking forward to seeing him lift the cup and I think the players want to see this too. It is the right finale for John,’ Conte explained earlier in the week.

Given their form, Sunderland hardly look likely to spoil the party
