Chelsea showed yesterday night that Manchester City is not unbeatable at Etihad. The Blues secured a hard fought 1-0 win over the Citizens to completely open the race for the title.

That defeat brought City down to no. 2 in the table. Now, they are levelled with Chelsea as far as the no. of points is concerned. Arsenal has got a couple of points more and they have again become the table toppers.

So, the difference of points between the teams which are positioned at the top three places is almost nothing now. Any of those three can win the crown.

One of Chelsea’s veterans John Terry addressed the press conference after the match against City and joyful expressions were all over his face while he was answering the questions of the reporters.

Terry reckons that his team has sent a very strong message to all its title rivals by getting better of City at the Etihad Stadium.

The 33 years old centre-back said, “City has been amazing this season. So, to put up a performance like this against them and get 3 points, it’s great for us.”

“We have shown that it’s possible to defeat City over here.”

Jose Mourinho, the Chelsea boss, has been criticized quite a lot for some of his tactical moves off late, but, in that game against City, the Portuguese seemed to have got all his tactics right and Terry lauded him for that.

When asked if Mourinho deserves a bit of credit for this win, Terry said, “Yes, he does. He kept the spirits high in the group even after the disappointing result against West Ham United. He is really fantastic.”

The Blues have to play their next league game against Newcastle United at Stamford Bridge on 8th of February.
