Terry: We are not boring

The champions-elect have come in for criticism in recent weeks as they have scored only twice in their last three Premier League games.

They happily ceded possession to Manchester United and Arsenal in their last two fixtures and still emerged with four points.

“We are definitely not boring and if we do go on to win it, nobody???s going to remember the performances when perhaps it???s not been that exciting, but we’ve dug deep where other teams haven???t and that is why they are so far behind us,” said Terry.

“Possession is great, we could see that from the Manchester United game last week.

“Possession and tippy-tappy football???s great, but if you are not winning games you???re not going to win the league.

“Let???s not forget the first half of the season, up until Christmas, we were the best side by far.??

“The football we played with Fabregas and his assists, the goal at Burnley by Andre Schurrle and goals after that. The play was different class.

“Things then went against us and the manager being him, came up with the way to get us through games and that???s where he???s at his best.??

“Let???s not forget we were the best side up until Christmas for sure and we have actually beaten the teams who have made things difficult for us.

“We are grinding out results, we have got the quality in the squad, so hopefully we can get over the line because we are very close.”

Chelsea need just five more points to win the Premier League.
