London - Chelsea captain John Terry will play no part in Tuesday's Champions League clash at Paris Saint-Germain due to a hamstring injury, the club said on Monday.

The veteran Chelsea leader will be sorely missed in the last 16, first leg at the Parc des Princes and has not even travelled to Paris with the squad.

"John Terry has not travelled due to a minor problem with his hamstring and ligament," Chelsea said on their club website.

Terry, 35, limped off injured towards the end of the first half of Saturday's 5-1 Premier League win over Newcastle, and after a scan on Sunday took part in Chelsea's open training session on Monday afternoon.

But the Premier League champions later announced that the centre-back had not travelled with the squad.

The sides meet in the Champions League for the third successive season and PSG originally appeared the undisputed favourites.

But while Chelsea remain in the bottom half of the Premier League, they have now gone 12 games unbeaten in a steady recovery under new coach Guus Hiddink.
