Chelsea captain John Terry couldn’t explain why his team failed to show up for the game against Manchester United. Chelsea lost 2-1 to the Red Devils and Sir Alex Ferguson’s side look certain to become champions, needing only one point from their last two games.
The display by Chelsea in the first 45 minutes of the game was terrible, exemplified by conceding a goal after only 36 seconds. Speaking to Chelsea TV Terry admitted the first half was abysmal, “The first half, we didn’t deserve anything from the game at all”.
Terry continued: “I’m not sure. We were fully prepared and it’s one of those things. Disappointing day but, going back two months, we would’ve taken this – being in the position, three points behind United at the start of the game”.
He added: “We felt it was in our hands and we could come here and we could win the game. Sometimes, you have to hold your hands up. We came here hoping and praying that we started well and the role was completely reversed”.
The Chelsea squad looks likely to be revamped after a trophy-less season. Some of the older players will be allowed to leave Stamford Bridge and question marks remain over manager Carlo Ancelotti’s future at the club. Roman Abramovich and the Chelsea board will make their decision known after the last game of the season.
