Benitez and Terry best of friends as Chelsea stroll

Rafael Benitez and John Terry have rubbished reports that the pair have fallen out over the Chelsea interim manager's recent non-selection of the injury-troubled captain.

Terry started yesterday's 4-0 FA Cup fourth-round replay victory over Brentford – scoring the final goal in the closing minutes – in only his fourth appearance since Benitez's arrival at Stamford Bridge.

"It is totally rubbish," said the Spaniard, above. "We didn't have any problem. We were talking just about football with the team." Former England captain Terry echoed Benitez's words: "The manager knows me and I want to play. I have been out for two or three months, but the other two [centre-backs] have been doing well. It's good to have competition."

Midfielders Juan Mata, Oscar and Frank Lampard also found the net after a goalless opening half against the League One side to take the holders through to a fifth-round tie at Championship Middlesbrough a week on Wednesday. A potential trip to Manchester United awaits the victors in the last eight. MORE
