Petr Cech insists long-time team-mate John Terry will not let the boo-boys beat him.

Never one of the most popular players outside his Chelsea heartland, Terry's recent court case seems to have turned even more fans against him. He was jeered by Manchester City's fans at Villa Park during Sunday's Community Shield and it is easy to imagine the reception being much worse at Old Trafford and Loftus Road later in the season.

However, Cech has shared a dressing room with Terry long enough to know the 31-year-old has a mental toughness few can match, and he said: "He is a strong player. He knows that this will go on every time he plays away from home. It won't affect him."
