John Terry is delighted the way his team has started their quest to regain the English title, and why shouldn’t he. However, he insists there is plenty of work to be done before the Premier League trophy is back at Stamford Bridge.
Though we are sitting at the top with five points more than Manchester City, the Captain refuses to be complacent and stresses that the title race is far from being over.
“Clearly it (the title race) is not over,” he said.
“Other teams have been in this position. It’s nice to have the lead but when you’re at the top everyone wants to shoot you down.
“That’s the good thing about the Premier League and why everyone loves it.
“Teams are out to get us because we are at the top and playing well.
“The international break is here and we need to come back and maintain our form after that as well. It’s very important we do that,” the former England international added.
John Terry is experienced enough to understand that any slip up on the rival side can make a huge difference if Chelsea can keep performing the same way they have in the last seven games.
“You’re just hoping when you’re at the top and have a five-point cushion and more on certain teams, a couple of them slip up again and that increases.
“If that happens, it’s a lot of points to give up early on. All we can do is keep winning and wait for those teams to slip up.”
