Terry believes his side's 100% start to the season and recent form in Manchester will stand the Blues in good stead.

"We've had a good record going away there at Old Trafford in the last few years and I think that will serve us well," Terry told Sky Sports' Geoff Shreeves.

"Obviously it's David Moyes' first game at the stadium so you're expecting quite a hostile atmosphere anyway.

"But we'll go there and look to stay solid for the first 15 minutes anyway. We know it's going to be a tough place to go and they've obviously had a good win against Swansea as well.

"I think that the two wins for us early on will definitely serve us well and we'll go there full of confidence.

"From our point of view we've had two games at home and we've won both of them."

Terry added: "I think Jose's record in the Premiership and at Stamford Bridge has always been very good and he's made it very clear again to us that it's very important we win our home games and we hope to win as many away games as possible.

"At the same time I personally feel you can go away and win or lose these big games, it's important you win your home games. Even though I think we're strong enough to go there and win, I think a result would be a good result for both sides maybe and then we move on into the season."

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
