John Terry has admitted the meltdown at Chelsea drove his incredible injury comeback as he revealed he was jogging again only two days after knee surgery.

Blues captain Terry earned a shock place in the squad for Tuesday night's FA Cup fifth-round win at Birmingham, less than a fortnight after undergoing a procedure that was expected to sideline him until next month.

The 31-year-old, who was an unused substitute in what was Chelsea's first game since Andre Villas-Boas was sacked as manager, is now targeting a recall in Saturday's Barclays Premier League game against Stoke. He told Chelsea TV: "Once I had the operation I was literally jogging about after two days, which was incredible."
