John Terry won't start for Europa League final

Chelsea captain John Terry suffered cup final heartbreak for the second time in 12 months when he missed out on selection for tonight's Europa League showdown against Benfica in Amsterdam.

The former England centre half was left out of the starting lineup after failing to recover from a twisted ankle he sustained in Saturday's 2-1 Premier League win at Aston Villa.

Terry also missed last season's Champions League final victory over Bayern Munich through suspension.
