John Terry has played down his latest knee scare and is confident of being fit for Chelsea's Barclays Premier League game against Sunderland on Saturday.

Terry hurt his right knee colliding with the post while making a goalline clearance in Sunday's FA Cup win over Portsmouth. The Blues and England captain was able to continue at the expense of some swelling, adding to the left-knee problem that has been troubling him recently.

Terry, who is renowned for playing through the pain, told Chelsea TV: "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 am sure with the couple of days off we have, it will heal."
