John Terry has told the Guardian that he still believe Chelsea are in with a chance of winning the Premier League if they can beat Manchester United at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday. The game which was re-arranged after it was cancelled in December would have to kick-start an unlikely 12 point come back by the Blues, but that doesn’t intimidate Terry.
He told the newspaper: “We go into the game with no fear, just passion. Being able to put pressure on them would be great. There’s a really small chance of us still winning the title, but it’s a must-win game. Teams have clawed back deficits like this before. It’s been done. United did it to Newcastle many years ago”.
Terry feels that beating Manchester United would be a good way to start an unlikely comeback and that it is certainly not impossible. He said: “I don’t think anyone should be fearful of United. At times we see they can be beaten and got at. They’re certainly not invincible”.
Terry hopes that the forward line will lead the line, describing Anelka, Torres and Drogba as “some of the best”.
Chelsea have been knocked out of the Carling Cup and FA Cup this season leaving the Champions League their only other chance for silverware besides the remote chance of winning the Premiership.
