Former Tottenham midfielder Jamie Redknapp says Chelsea captain John Terry is back to his best.

Redknapp wrote in the Daily Mail: "If you were picking an England team based on form, John Terry would have to be in it.

"Alongside Everton's Phil Jagielka, he is the best English defender. I doubt Roy Hodgson would get a positive response if he were to ask him, however.

"The Chelsea captain is using the spare time created by international football breaks to keep his body fit and his mind clear. His club are getting the benefits of that, as he showed again on Sunday."
