John Terry believes that his knee problem will heal in time for Chelsea's match against Sunderland on Saturday.

Chelsea captain John Terry has calmed fears over a fitness worry by claiming that he expects to be fit for the Blues' Premier League clash against Sunderland this Saturday.

The England skipper picked up a knee problem during Chelsea's 4-0 win over Portsmouth in the FA Cup third round at the weekend.

"I have been struggling with the other knee but I clattered into the post with my right knee," Terry told Chelsea TV. "All is fine. It's a little bit swollen but I am sure with the couple of days off we have, it will heal."

Andre Villas-Boas's side sit in fourth place, 11 points adrift of league leaders Manchester City.
