Terry v Bridge odds: 2/1 to shake hands

John Terry and Wayne Bridge are set to face each other in two potentially explosive clashes over eight days if Manchester City win their FA Cup replay with Stoke next week and Sky Bet are offering some Terry v Bridge special markets on the encounters between the former Chelsea teammates.

Wayne Bridge is expected to snub John Terry's handshake when the two come face to face at Stamford Bridge a week on Saturday and they are 2/1 to shake hands at the end of a match this season. 5/1 is on offer for the former pals to swap shirts.

The pair have not spoken since the allegations of Terry’s affair with Bridge’s ex-girlfriend Vanessa Perroncel came to light and Sky Bet offer 3/1 that either player is booked for fouling the other during their Premier League tie on February 27 or potential FA Cup quarter-final clash (or resulting replay).

Sky Bet's football betting spokeswoman Helen Jacob said: "Bridge has maintained a dignified silence over the affair but shaking hands with Terry could be too much to ask.”

The England defenders will also meet-up ahead of the friendly with Egypt on March 3, although Bridge is said to be considering retiring from international football. Sky Bet go 5/2 that he announces his retirement this week.

Bridge is a strong contender to be included in Capello's World Cup squad as back-up for the injured Ashley Cole and is 6/1 to start at left-back against the USA on June 12.
