Chelsea boss Rafa Benitez denies tension with captain John Terry.

A report on Sunday claimed Terry, who made his third start under Benitez following a knee injury sustained in November, and the Spaniard clashed earlier this month, but both parties branded it "rubbish" and were adamant they were on good terms.

"We were surprised today with some comments," said Benitez, who kept Chelsea on course for a fifth FA Cup triumph in seven seasons.

"It's totally rubbish. We didn't have any problem. We were talking about football with the team.

"He was training yesterday, we had normal conversations. Everything was fine. I was really surprised."
