Chelsea boss Andre Villas-Boas has called for an end to talk about John Terry's return to QPR ahead of next Saturday's FA Cup clash.

The fourth-round draw will see Blues captain Terry go head to head with Anton Ferdinand four days ahead of the court case in which he stands accused of racially abusing the Rangers defender.

The build-up to next weekend's fixture will inevitably be dominated by the Terry-Ferdinand reunion, but Villas-Boas said: "What are you going to do to make that environment a bit better, in terms of headlines and how much time we're going to see taken up with Anton v Terry."
