Chelsea skipper John Terry is angry over claims he's not fit enough to play regularly.Rafa Benitez has blamed Terry's regular absence this year on a lack of training.

But Terry stormed: "I want to set the record straight. I am fit and training every day - and have been for three months. I can definitely play twice or even three times a week."

Terry also had a veiled dig at Benitez by praising Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers - one-time reserve coach at Chelsea.

The Blues visit Liverpool on Sunday. And Terry added: "Brendan is a great manager who was brilliant for me and a lot of other Chelsea players. He was a real gentleman."

 Is Terry right to defend himself? Does he warrant an automatic start? Give us your shout below...
