Terry: We'll come together

John Terry expressed the disappointment in the camp following our defeat at Tottenham, and insisted the squad will regroup and look to put another positive sequence of results together.

The Blues were beaten 5-3 at White Hart Lane, with Tottenham scoring twice at the end of the first half to give them a 3-1 advantage at the break.

We showed great character during the second half to try to get back into the game, but were ultimately left too much to do.

‘We’re very disappointed to start the New Year with a defeat but we’ll move on from this,’ Terry said.

‘I thought at times we played some really good football, it just wasn’t our day so we’ll forget this one and move on very quickly.

‘Once we got the goal they were on the back foot but they scored from nothing and were back in the game.’

Terry, who scored for the third time over the festive period to make it 5-3 late on, felt we were denied a penalty at 1-0 when Cesc Fabregas’s strike appeared to hit the arm of Jan Vertonghen.

‘We should have had a penalty at Southampton and we should have had another one at 1-0,’ he explained. ‘The game’s finished then. I’ve said before it’s difficult, sometimes you get them, sometimes you don’t, and in the last few games we haven’t.’

Our result, coupled with Manchester City’s win against Sunderland, means we are now level on points with Manuel Pellegrini’s side, but the Chelsea skipper is confident we can regain our advantage.

‘It’s hard to see them claw us back, we were eight points in front and now we’re level on points,’ he said. ‘It’s disappointing to have lost that lead but we said in the dressing room we’ll come together, put a run together and hopefully get a lead again.’
