John Terry insists he will not be worried about a potential suspension when he leads Chelsea out to face Liverpool in the first leg of the Champions League quarter-final on Wednesday night.

If Terry is booked at Anfield he will be banned for the second leg at Stamford Bridge next week, but he maintains he will stick to his usual style of play.

"I know I am one yellow card away from a ban but I will handle that just the same as I did in the last game against Juventus when it was the same situation," said Terry. "If there's a ball to be won, I'll go and win it. You can't go into the game thinking any other way."

He added: "But I'm hoping, obviously, not to make a bad tackle. I expect we will see an English-style match, with us trying our hardest hoping to score, while they will have their fans behind them.

"Hopefully the referee (Claus Bo Larsen) is very lenient both ways and we can get on with the match."

Ashley Cole and Nicolas Anelka are in the same situation as Terry, who has vowed to erase the memory of his penalty miss which cost Chelsea the Champions League trophy last season.

Had Terry scored his spot-kick the Blues would have beaten Manchester United, but he missed, allowing Sir Alex Ferguson's men to triumph in sudden death.

"I am very determined to go the extra step this year and win the trophy," he said.

"That burning (disappointment) I suffered last year will live with me forever.

"The one way I can make that pain ease a little bit is to win this trophy. I can do that with the manager we have in charge this season."
