Terry: “A new year, a new start”

by -

Chelsea captain John Terry has compared his side’s performance in the 0-3 win over Crystal Palace to those of last season.¬†

Goals from Oscar, Willian and the returning Diego Costa secured a deserved win for Guus Hiddink’s men, putting them six points clear of the relegation zone.

Speaking to Sky Sports after the game, Terry said that the win is a massive confidence boost:

This was the Chelsea of last year, the football was first class and we kept the ball in tough conditions.

“A near year, a new start, we just have to keep winning games now.

“We are delighted and it is the feeling we want.”

The Blues skipper also praised interim boss Hiddink, who is unbeaten in his second spell at Stamford Bridge. Over those two spells, the Dutchman has lost just once out of his 16 games.

Guus has been great since he has come in,” Terry said.

It was unfortunate what happened but he has come in and picked everyone up. We are, where we are, we have not dwelled on it.

“If we can put together a run of games who knows hopefully we can go a long way.”
