The skipper says that the Blues can triumph once again.
Following their 3-1 win over Southampton on Sunday Chelsea captain John Terry says the club can lift the Premier League title again this year.
Jose Mourinho helped the Blues to two league titles in three years the last time the 50-year-old was in charge at Stamford Bridge.
With the division so close in 2013/14 Terry believes that it’s realistic for the west London team to triumph.
“The Premier League is more open than I’ve ever seen it,” the 32-year-old was quoted by ITV.
“We saw that with Hull beating Liverpool. It was important [to beat Southampton] with Man U and Liverpool dropping points. It was a chance to push on and pull away from them.
“Ideally I’d like to be sitting top of the league. I feel as though it will come and we’ll get better and better.”
Terry has been in fine form for the team since being reinstated as a regular first team player by Mourinho and the defender scored a header in the victory over the Saints.
The skipper is forming a strong partnership alongside fellow Englishman Gary Cahill at the back and is seems as if the Portuguese coach is building solid defensive foundations once again.
Last time the 50-year-old was in charge it was the club’s ability to not concede goals that largley attributed to their success.
The match was also a special occasion for Terry as the centre-back played in his 400th Premier League match and is also fourth on the club’s all-time appearance list.
