The Chelsea captain John Terry has dismissed the protests from Bolton that he handballed the ball in the area, which could have given Bolton an equalizer last night.
“I don’t know what it looked like on TV, but it definitely felt like it hit the top of my chest.” Terry said.
“You go through a season and you’re going to get penalties and not going to get them. They could have had one. We could have had one.”
Yuri Zhirkov played on despite suffering a clash of heads which left him literally pouring with blood, and Terry was more than happy with the Russian’s contribution.
“He’s come into the side since Ashley Cole has been out, and been brilliant for us” he said.
“That’s what a squad is all about, important players like Yuri. His English is coming on as well which is even better.”
“The whole game certainly wasn’t easy with Kevin Davies up front and Jack Wilshere in behind,”
“They caused us problems all night. But I thought we did well and did what we had to do.”
Now the Blues have another hard came coming up, in a difficult trip to local rivals Tottenham, and Terry is aware it won’t be easy, but the other challengers also have difficult tasks.
“We’ve all got a tough weekend,” he continued.
“It’s a local derby for us, we go there four points clear and are hoping to kick on and make that more.”
Chelsea can now afford to lose one of their last four games, but the one the fans would absolutely hate for them to drop points is in this one!
