Chelsea's John Terry will serve a one-match ban, after the club's appeal against the red card received in the 4-1 FA Cup third round tie against Peterborough was rejected.


A statement on the FA's ​website reads that Terry's ban will come into "immediate effect" after his his wrongful dismissal claim was turned down by the hearing commission, meaning the 36-year-old will be unavailable for Chelsea's clash with Premier League champions Leicester City on Saturday.

​​The Chelsea captain was sent off by referee Kevin Friend for bringing down Lee Angol and denying a goalscoring opportunity in the second half of the Blues victory over League One Peterborough.


Five-time FA Cup winner Terry has played just eight times for Chelsea's first team this season, and has been a peripheral figure in Antonio Conte's reshuffled side.

Despite rumours of a January exit, Terry is apparently uninterested in a move away from Stamford Bridge and is keen to stay, fight for his place and earn a fifth Premier League title.
