Chelsea captain John Terry has played down the severity of his latest knee scare and is confident he will be fit for the Blues’ Premier League game against Sunderland on Saturday, Metro
Terry hurt his right knee during last Sunday’s FA Cup win at home to Portsmouth in a collision with a goalpost, but was able to continue. The England captain has struggled with a left-knee problem which he had been carrying all season and had a late fitness test before the FA Cup game. Terry reportedly had an injection to carry him through the last league game against Wolves and Chelsea boss Andre Villas-Boas could be worried about his captain.
The 31 year old insists that he is fine and will be able to play on Saturday. Chelsea need three points in their search to get back into the top four and Terry is a much-needed source of reliability in a rocky Blues defence. The impending arrival of Gary Cahill is set to help Terry and the Chelsea captain will be available for Saturday’s game.
Terry said: ‘I have been struggling with the other knee, but I clattered into the post with my right knee. All is fine. It’s a little bit swollen, but I’m sure with the couple of days off, it will heal’.
