Chelsea's victory over Hull on Sunday was a relief for all of us. John Terry has spoken to the press after the game and has talked of the importance of the three points before the two week international break.
"There was a different reaction – we were disappointed with the way we threw away the lead but at the same time we showed great character.
The importance of the win showed on the players’ faces and the manager’s afterwards. It was an important three points going into the international break. For everyone to dwell over that for two weeks was massive.
It’s exciting, with us playing on Sunday and watching the games on Saturday. I was hoping they [Chelsea’s rivals] would slip up and we’d come here and win. So when everyone won on Saturday, we had to come here and win before the international break. It was huge.
There is still an awful long way to go. We have Stoke at home and QPR away next, which is always a tough one for us. Hopefully, everyone will come back fit after the international break and go again. It’s important we get back to winning at Stamford Bridge because it’s something we haven’t done for a few weeks.”He's right, the win could turn out to be massive. We haven't been playing well but somehow have managed to extend our lead over Manchester City to six points with a game in hand.
We were staring yet another draw in the face on Sunday after joke defending gave away our two goal lead and it looked like we would continue to struggle to break Hull down after they recovered from our excellent start.
Loic Remy stepped up, scored another important goal and change the face of the Premier League table once again. Our rivals would have seen that and now take that into the international break knowing we have taken hold of the title race with a distinct advantage that could be extended if we beat Leicester (our game in hand) to go nine points clear.
Some have compared Sunday to Blackburn of ten years ago. Do you agree?
