Terry confident of cup double for Chelsea

Chelsea captain John Terry has described how a season of turmoil could end in glory for the Blues as they look to win the FA Cup and the Champions League, The Mirror reports.

The England international returned from knee surgery to help Chelsea win in the Champions League against Napoli and with a quarter-final tie against Benfica at the end of the month, the Blues should be confident in their chances of making the semi-finals. Chelsea face Leicester City in the quarter-finals of the FA Cup this afternoon hopeful of progressing to Wembley and Terry is looking forward to the run-in, as the Blues close in on the Champions League places.

Andre Villas-Boas’ dismissal saw the end of a bad run of form for Chelsea, who have won three out of three under interim manager Roberto di Matteo. Terry believes that things have changed for the better in recent weeks and the club are not in turmoil with senior players threatening to control what is happening at the club. The 31 year old could be a doubt for the game against the Foxes after hobbling off against Napoli with a knee worry, but will be back for the end of season run-in.

Terry said: “Realistically, we are out of the league. But with the two cups to play for, it could still go down as one of the best seasons in the club’s history. It (the Napoli game) was a big performance – individually and collectively. Things have changed for the better for us. That is no disrespect to Andre. I think now, he (Abramovich) has the right people involved and people he can rely on without the players.”
