Two months after facing each other in court, John Terry and Anton Ferdinand are set to meet on the football pitch as English Premier League leader Chelsea visits fierce local rival Queens Park Rangers in the weekend's standout match.

In a case that highlighted the foul-mouthed language used in football, Terry was cleared of racially abusing Ferdinand in last season's corresponding match between the west London clubs in October.

Terry, the Chelsea and England defender, is awaiting the outcome of an FA charge relating to the same case and all eyes will be on the traditional pre-match handshake between the teams, which was scrapped twice last season on legal advice.

Chelsea has a maximum nine points and is two clear of Swansea, West Bromwich and Manchester City after three games.
