Terry: These Chelsea kids are good enough

Chelsea captain John Terry was delighted with the performance of his young teammates in their FA Cup win over Watford.

Youngsters Gael Kakuta, Nemanja Matic and Daniel Sturridge, who scored twice, all got in on the action against Watford and Terry is hoping his own FA Cup experience can rub off on the youngsters, saying.

He said: "It was such a big thing when I first came here. I was at Wembley in 1997, still a schoolboy, when Dennis Wise led the boys to the first trophy in 26 years. That day Jody Morris was on the bench as well and it was really important in giving us the belief we could make it here. I honestly believe there are some youngsters at Chelsea now who can make this year's FA Cup work for them in the same way."
