Chelsea boss Andre Villas-Boas is certain John Terry will not be affected mentally by his forthcoming court case.
Charged on Wednesday with "a racially aggravated public order offence", Terry will face West London Magistrates Court on February 1, 24 hours after the Blues have faced Swansea in a Barclays Premier League game and four days before they tackle Manchester United at Stamford Bridge.
Prior to that, Chelsea have a packed festive programme to complete, starting with Thursday night's clash against Tottenham at White Hart Lane, but Villas-Boas said: "John has told me he is in the right frame of mind to play and showed fantastic commitment to the team. His performances have been good and I don't doubt his integrity as a person."
