Chelsea and England captain John Terry is confident he will be fit for Saturday's Premier League game against Sunderland despite a knee injury.

Terry's right knee collided with the post while he made a goal-line clearance during last weekend's FA Cup win over Portsmouth.

But Terry, speaking to Chelsea TV on Wednesday, said: "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."
