Chelsea skipper salutes 'massive' moment in title race

Published Add your comment

Chelsea captain John Terry believes last weekend's series of results could be a pivotal moment in the title race.

The Blues took advantage of draws and defeats at the top of the table on Monday night, winning in convincing fashion against strugglers Blackpool.

Whilst Carlo Ancelotti has joined the pundits in writing off Chelsea's title chances, the players appear to retain belief that the Stamford Bridge outfit could produce one of the great comebacks to take the Barclays Premier League crown.

Frank Lampard was one of the first to say that the fight isn't over, and Chelsea stopper Petr Cech echoed the midfielder's sentiments. Now, skipper John Terry has joined the chorus of players saying it isn't all over.

"We needed it, it's a massive win actually," the 30-year-old told the official Chelsea website when reflecting on the win at Bloomfield Road.


"Watching Manchester United get beaten, Spurs , Arsenal drawing at home which nobody really expected, so it was important we capitalised tonight.

"At times we've played a lot better but at the same time come away with nothing, so you come away from home to a tough place and you'd take a good win."

Chelsea have a rest this weekend after being knocked out of the FA Cup by Everton a fortnight ago, but with matches against Manchester City and Stoke round the corner they will be desperate to keep the pressure up at the top of the league.
