Chelsea captain John Terry stands on the brink of a Premier League and FA Cup double insisting it still would not compensate for the hurt of failing to win the Champions League.

Terry is still haunted by his penalty miss in Moscow two years ago which saw Manchester United win Europe's top competition.

"Nothing will ever make up for Moscow unless we go and win the Champions League in my lifetime - that's a fact," said Terry. "But we have got a chance to go down in the club's history, the double has never been done before at this club and we have a great chance to do it."

Terry is fit to lead the Blues out at Wembley after overcoming an injury scare to his right foot.

The defender was hurt in a clash with striker Daniel Sturridge in training on Wednesday but scans ruled out fears he had broken his metatarsal.

Terry admitted he had been "scared" by the injury ahead of the FA Cup final and the World Cup finals in South Africa.

"It was sorted out in a couple of hours but I was a bit scared, I must say," said Terry, who was speaking after taking part in training on Thursday.

"I was just running back to goal and Daniel fell on top of me. My foot was caught underneath. I thought it was quite bad initially.

"But once I had the scan, it was just bruising and today there was no problem at all.

"I was delighted when I got the scan results and there was no ligament damage or anything like that. It was just a bit of bruising inside the foot so no problem at all."
