John Terry insists that he will work hard to win back his place in Chelsea's regular starting lineup.

Chelsea captain John Terry has admitted that he is under no illusions that he should be gifted a regular place in interim manager Rafael Benitez's starting lineup.

The centre-back has drifted in and out of the team since damaging his knee back in November, but the former England international is content with fighting for his position.

"All I can do, if I am not first or second choice, is obviously take my opportunities and try and impress the manager on a daily basis," Terry told Sky Sports News.

"If he decides to go with the other two [players], then so be it. It is down to me to work hard and get back in this very good team."

Terry netted a brace and David Luiz found the back of the net with a thumping shot in last night's 3-0 win over Fulham in the Premier League.
