Terry would take Moscow spot-kick

Chelsea winger Victor Moses is fully focused on the UEFA Europa League tie against Rubin Kazan and not on the FA Cup with Manchester City on Sunday

Chelsea interim boss Rafael Benitez has said John Terry will take a penalty if his side's game against Rubin Kazan goes to a shootout on Thursday.

• Blog: Chelsea braced for climax

Terry, 32, will not have fond memories of the venue of this week's game in Europe as Chelsea head to the Luzhniki Stadium, where Chelsea were beaten by Manchester United in the 2008 Champions League final.

During that match in Moscow, Terry missed his spot-kick as United clinched glory - but the centre-back would volunteer to take another decisive strike should their meeting with Rubin go to spot-kicks.

Benitez, whose side won the first leg 3-1, is quoted as saying in the Sun: "We know it could go to penalties but we hope to avoid that.

"I know what happened in 2008 but I don't want to talk too much about that because everyone will have bad memories about it.

"If penalties are necessary, John will take one. The main thing is to have players who want to take one. You can't just say 'You, you and you'. First, you have to be convinced they'll score.

"Sometimes at the end of training the players practice penalties but not especially for this game. If we do require penalties, we're confident we have enough quality and experience."
