Terry ready for Reds showdown

John Terry insists Chelsea will be ready for the visit of Liverpool on Sunday despite an unconvincing win over Apoel Nicosia in the Champions League. Nicolas Anelka's 18th-minute goal earned them victory but the performance did not please coach Carlo Ancelotti. Captain Terry promised the Blues would be ready for the Merseysiders. "The confidence wasn't knocked at Wigan - you can't afford not to believe in yourselves or your team-mates," said Terry. "It was important that we realised we went wrong at Wigan and that we responded well. You don't get much time to think about it with the games coming thick and fast, and we did a good job here. "We responded well against Apoel. We're top of the group with six points from two games, in a good position, and now we go back to the Premier League for the Liverpool game on Sunday. "We have to be better against Liverpool. They are a very good side who had a tough result on Tuesday. They will be up for it and they are a big club, so we will have to respond again when we play them."
