Terry confesses: I don't know where I stand at Chelsea...

Chelsea skipper John Terry admits it was difficult watching from the bench as they were knocked out of the FA Cup by Manchester City. Terry returned to the starting line-up last night to score twice in victory at Fulham.

"Yes, it was a little bit hard to watch from the bench at Wembley - obviously myself and Frank (Lampard) have a good record there for Chelsea, but I don't have a problem with the manager choosing other players in front of me.

"If he decides that's his favourite pair, then so be it. It's down to me to work hard and maybe prove him wrong.

"With Gary Cahill coming back as well, I don't know where that puts me in the pecking order, but all I can do is train hard, work hard and when I do get a chance, play well. Obviously the goals are an added bonus for me. There are no complaints. If the manager is straight with me and tells me, that's totally fine."
