John Terry is bracing himself for an emotional farewell as the clock ticks down on his Chelsea career.
The Blues have two Premier League fixtures remaining as they travel to Liverpool on Wednesday before hosting champions Leicester City on the final weekend.
Skipper Terry will play no part in either of those fixtures though after being shown his second red card of the season in the defeat to Sunderland on Saturday.
Terry is out of contract in the summer and has so far received no offer from the club to extend his 18-year stay at Stamford Bridge by another 12 months.
Missing out on the chance to pull on the famous blue shirt one last time in front of his own fans against the Foxes left the defender inconsolable at the Stadium of Light.
As we advance through the final week of what has been a forgettable campaign for Chelsea , here is how Terry’s final days in west London are expected to pan out.

Having made the quick dash back across Europe, Terry is expected to report for training at Cobham as usual. He has had his fair share of fitness problems this season but is fit again having played in the club’s last two fixtures.
Wednesday, May 11
Chelsea face Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool at Anfield. Blues manager Guus Hiddink will be unable to select Terry as he serves the first of his two-game suspension against the Reds on Merseyside.
Thursday, May 12
The Blues are likely to be given the day off after their exertions in Liverpool the previous night. Recovery time is crucial for the squad to avoid injuries, particularly in the latter stages of the season.
Friday & Saturday, May 13 & 14
Training resumes at Cobham as attention turns to Chelsea’s final remaining Premier League fixture of the 2015-16 season. Terry is expected to continue working on his fitness with the group despite his continued suspension.
Sunday, May 15
Leicester come to Stamford Bridge to bring the curtain down on the campaign. Terry will be in attendance and take in the game from the comfort of a private box before joining the squad on the pitch for a lap of honour and followed by a bash at the club’s Under the Bridge music venue.
Monday, May 16
Having been confined to the stands for the Leicester game, Terry will finally get the chance to take to the field one last time for a farewell party after it emerged he is hiring out Stamford Bridge for a game with his close pals. Chelsea are waiving the pitch hire fee.
Tuesday, May 17
The countdown begins until the expiry of Terry’s Chelsea contract at the end of June. Unless the club have a late change of heart, the captain will begin looking for a new club for next season.
