John Terry says that the manner of Chelsea’s dramatic 3-2 win at Hull City on Sunday is testament to the Blues’ “immense” character.
Two goals in the space of 76 first-half seconds from Ahmed Elmohamady and Abel Hernandez stunned Jose Mourinho’s side, who were 2-0 up inside 10 minutes courtesy of Eden Hazard and Diego Costa.
However, Loic Remy climbed off the bench at the KC Stadium on 75 minutes and struck a winner shortly after to restore Chelsea’s six-point lead over second-placed Manchester City.
Consequently, captain Terry was left hailing the “massive” win and claims that the result offers an insight into the resilience flowing through the dressing room.
“The importance of the win showed on the players’ faces and that of the manager afterwards,” the skipper is quoted as saying by the Daily Mail.
“When you set the standard so high as we have done from the word go, then start dropping points at home and go out of the Champions League, once again it comes back down to character.
“It’s immense in the dressing room, there is an awful lot of experience in there. It will serve the younger lads well, too.
“It was an important three points going into the international break. For everyone to dwell over that for two weeks was massive.”
