Chelsea will travel to Middlesborough next Wednesday to play for a place in the last eighth of the FA cup. The Blues also have tough away game against Manchester City in the Premier league on Sunday, but Rafa Benitez has insisted that he is fully focused on betting through to the last 16 of the Europa league tonight.

Chelsea have given themselves every chance with a 1-0 victory in the away leg against Sparta Prague, but Rafa says he will not be taking any chances and is taking the competition seriously.

John Terry sat on the bench last night as Chelsea beat Sparta Prague 1-0 in the away leg of the Europa league tie. It seemed like the perfect opportunity for the captain to get a run out, because Gary Cahill had been booked and seemed to be on his last waring with 30 minutes to go, but Rafa Benitez left Cahill on, and has explained that Terry suffered another setback to his recovery this week.
