Terry expects to be fit to face Sunderland

Chelsea captain John Terry has cooled fears over his latest knee scare and is confident of being fit for Saturday's clash against Sunderland.

Terry hurt his right knee colliding with the post while making a goalline clearance in Sunday's FA Cup win over Portsmouth.

The Blues and England skipper was able to continue at the expense of some swelling, adding to the left-knee problem that has been troubling him recently.

That issue forced Terry to undergo a late fitness test ahead of Sunday's game, amid reports he needed an injection to get through the previous Monday's victory at Wolves.

Chelsea will host the Black Cats in the Premier League this weekend and the defender expects to be available for the encounter.

Terry, who is renowned for playing through the pain, told Chelsea TV: "I have been struggling with the other knee but I clattered into the post with my right knee.

"All is fine. It's a little bit swollen but I am sure with the couple of days off we have, it will heal."
