Chelsea captain John Terry is looking forward to facing Brentford defender Harlee Dean in their FA Cup clash.

The Bees defender is carving out a name for himself in West London and admits he has modelled himself on the Chelsea star.

He said: "I've always wanted to play against John and to do so is a dream come true.

"He's my idol and he's always been my favourite centre-half.

"I model myself on John - not just in tackling but with playing with my heart on my sleeve. I love a tackle and I put my body on the line and that's exactly how John plays.

"If I had half the career he's had, I'd be happy. It would be lovely to out-jump John and put one in the back of the net.

"But whether or not it happens is a different thing."

Terry added: "I see a lot of myself in Harlee.

"It's going to be nice for us to come up against each other for the first time."
