Chelsea captain John Terry is now under pressure following his sending off during last Saturday’s 2-1 loss at Tottenham Hotspur, a slip-up that brought Manchester United within 1 point of the Blues. However, manager Carlo Ancelotti has defended his skipper saying that sometimes players can lose their control and that is what happened to Terry. He has also admitted that the England international is now under pressure, but the manager is not surprised at all as he believes everyone is under pressure with the title race becoming closer. Second placed Manchester United moved within a point of Chelsea following their derby win over ManchesterCity recently.
There are only 3 games left in the season and Chelsea is going to miss Terry for the StokeCity game. Missing a key defender like Terry at this stage of the league is definitely a blow for the West London club and it would be interesting to see if they can get over the hurdle and remain at the top of the table.
