Chelsea skipper John Terry was the hero this afternoon at Stamford Bridge, with a last second equaliser that fixed the result on 3-3.

His goal was slightly offside but, as he said to Sky Sports after the final whistle, it was not important to him:

“I don’t really care [that it was offside] as it was my first this season. It’s an important one as we’re still undefeated since the manager has come in.

“To keep that little momentum, ideally we needed three points, we’re not happy where we are in the league, we need to start winning games but every game’s tough and every opposition seems to be stepping up their game.”

“It was difficult especially after going 2-0 down. A lot of teams would have thrown the towel in, but the fight and the desire from the squad was unbelievable to come back, and we were unlucky not to win the game I think.

“Both teams were sussing each other out a little bit [in the first half], then it opened up slightly with more goals and chances, but it was a tireless effort from the boys.

“I think all we can do at the moment is give everything and I think the fans appreciate that even at 2-0 down, [with] everyone on their feet singing and applauding the players.

“[It was] different class from them, unbelievable desire from the players as well. As I said before, we want to get out of this position we’re in — we will do if we continue that fighting desire.”
