The case now stands closed with no action taken after the FA found no evidence of spot-fixing. John Terry had arranged to leave the field at exactly the 26th minute, which was also his jersey's number leading to thousands of pounds of bets predicting his leaving time.
John Terry said, "Congratulations skip @garyjcahill, @82garrygrey you might need to order a bigger size armband for the big mans arms. Unbelievable player @garyjcahill and no better man to lead our club @chelseafc to more success just like you did last season."
Even though John Terry was unable to score in his debut for the team, Aston Villa captain remained the highlight of the match as he wore the armband for the first time under Steve Bruce, whose side finished 13th in the Championship last season.
