Although Chelsea seem to be going through a little bad patch (come on, we’ve only lost one game all season!), John Terry was just pleased that the team came through with the three points from the game at Apoel Nicosia, and head the group with six points.
“Six points from two games is a very good start,” said Terry “and we’ve played Porto who are a very good side, very difficult away from home.”
“When you come to places like this [Cyprus], ideally you want to play well and I don’t think we were at our best, but at times we passed the ball around well and sometimes when you are away from home, you can’t ask for much more than that.
“Any team can have a good spell of 10 or 15 minutes with their fans behind them and APOEL were no different. They had some good possession and put a few decent crosses in but we put in a few interceptions and dealt with it and ended with a clean sheet.
“Year after year these teams seem to get better and these places are difficult places to come,” he added. “At times we were a little bit slow in the tempo of our play but we have responded to the defeat at Wigan with a win and that is what counts.”
Does he think that the defeat at Wigan may have dented the teams confidence?
“You can’t afford to let it. It was important we realised where we went wrong at Wigan and we responded well. You don’t get too much time to think about it. Now we go back to the Premier League and hopefully we can bounce back there as well.”
