Robbie Savage has again identified Chelsea captain John Terry as a weak link in the struggling side on current form, describing his performance as "awful" in the 2-1 defeat to Leicester City.

The champions slumped to their ninth Premier League defeat of the season as the Foxes reclaimed their place at the top of the tree and pressure continues to mount on manager Jose Mourinho.

Terry was replaced in the 53rd minute at the King Power Stadium by Cesc Fabregas and like his team-mates, has struggled for form all season.

Earlier this season Terry took exception to criticism from the BBC pundit, claiming that he won't take criticism from players who "have not had a career, played at a really bad level in their career … Robbie Savage being one".

Last night Savage again focused his attentions on the club captain following another difficult evening in the Blues rear-guard where the 35-year-old was culpable for Jamie Vardy's opener.

"I'm going to criticise John Terry again because he's the captain of that team and they looked a better side when he went off," Savage said.

"If he wants to question me again I don't really care because tonight he was awful once again."

Mourinho's side have just 15 points from 16 games and sit one point above the relegation zone.
