Terry made his first Premier League start since September 11 at Swansea, having initially lost his place due to injury before Chelsea grew from dysfunctional unit last season to champions this term.
Nathan Ake spoke highly of his former loan club Watford after Chelsea’s narrow 4-3 win over the Hornets at Stamford Bridge last night. He scored just one league goal that season.
“No, he should absolutely not retire”, Conte said, as reported by Goal.
It proved to be the appetiser for a insane 90 minutes of football as the home side threw away a 3-1 lead after Daryl Janmaat and Stefan Okaka cancelled out other efforts from Cesar Azpilicueta and Michy Batshuayi. Game over, thought the Chelsea faithful, but Watford, unlike West Ham against Liverpool on Sunday, didn’t roll over and die.
And the visitors were level again in the 74th minute when substitute Stefano Okaka, who had just come on three minutes earlier, turned in a Tom Cleverley cross that Terry and Kurt Zouma failed to clear.
He added: “This season, every single player must be a king for the supporters”. This is the right finale for John.
The 36-year old has spent 22-years at Stamford Bridge, winning five Premier League titles, one Champions League, one Europa League, four FA Cups (and a potential fifth in two weeks time) and three League cups.
“History has proved it’s very tough to win it back-to-back, but it has to be a target for us next year, 100 percent”, Cahill said.
Substitute Cesc Fabregas scored an 88th-minute victor as new Premier League champions Chelsea edged Watford 4-3 in a richly entertaining game at Stamford Bridge on Monday. “Nobody told me anything”, said the Italian, whose side remain 16th in the table. He is an important prospect for me, and we have to take the best decision for him for next season.
But the man Chelsea fans hail as “captain, leader, legend” in banners draped around the stadium was able to compensate for years through his astute reading of the game, accurate passing, natural strength and sheer commitment.
