“That’s why I’m happy that players like Fabregas and Oscar are doing their job as well so it’s good to see that some players step up, not just in their personal performance but also organising tactically.

“Azpilicueta also does a lot of shouting in training and Diego in his own way does a lot of coaching.

“I like Oscar, Willian, those guys who are gifted by nature but will also take command in this team.”

Terry has been sidelined by a hamstring injury since hobbling off against Newcastle 16 days ago.

But Chelsea boss Hiddink has vowed not to rush his Terry back – even if it means missing the crunch Champions League second leg against Paris St Germain next week.

The Dutchman said: “Someone thinks, ‘I’m fine, I feel OK’, but the demands of the game are a little bit different than training.

“It’s very, very tight whether he can play before the PSG match.
