Chelsea captain admits that he is "worried" about his rivals ahead of the new Premier League campaign.

John Terry has admitted that watching Manchester United lift the Premier League trophy last season remains a painful memory.

The 30-year-old centre back, who captained Chelsea to second place last season, believes that the upcoming campaign will be a tough contest.

Despite Chelsea’s positive start to last year’s season, they eventually conceded the trophy to rivals Manchester United.

"We all see the quality [Manchester United] have got, the hunger they have still got and the manager has," Terry told reporters. "When I see that it really drives me on. They have set the benchmark for everybody over the last 20 years which we are all trying to catch and achieve.

"When I saw them lift this trophy last year it still hurts today. I want to get my hands back on this and lift it.

"I am worried about a lot of teams. Everyone out there has strengthened. Manchester City and have signed some very good players, Liverpool seem to have strengthened an awful lot.

"There are not just one or two sides like there has been over the last four or five years, there are six or seven teams which can really push and have a chance of winning this great trophy."

The Blues are scheduled to begin their Premier League campaign with an away game to Stoke on August 14.
