John Terry slams Arsenal’s ‘boring Chelsea’ chants and their ‘tippy-tippy football’
The 34-year-old scored a tension breaking goal during the victory over relegation threatened Leicester City, and he will be able to lift the title again on Sunday should they beat Crystal Palace.
Chelsea have recently been hit with claims of being boring and Terry has taken a swipe at those who are claiming that they are not the ‘real deal’.
“We’ve been the best side all season. We deserve a lot of respect,” he said.
“Let’s hope we win it on Sunday. We are almost there.
We got a real telling off at half-time and then played excellently in the second half.”
Terry revealed that the hairdryer treatment from Jose Mourinho proved to be the catalyst in their turnaround at the King Power stadium.
His goal, sandwiched between strikes from Didier Drogba and Ramires, the former England international helped to cancel out Marc Albrighton’s first half opener.
Mourinho, though, refused to delve into what exactly he told his team to fire them up at the break.
“If I tell you on TV what I said it will be ‘peep, peep, peep’. Too many peeps!”
