John Terry has admitted that he was pleased with Chelsea’s performance in the 0-0 draw with Arsenal on Monday night.
The Blues got a deserved point at the Emirates Stadium on a gusty night in north London and the outcome was well-received by captain Terry who denied claims he and his teammates came simply for a draw.
The 33 year old told Sky Sports : “It was a bit breezy once the ball was in the air, but both sides were looking to play so that wasn’t a problem. The pitch was perfect,”.
“We have come here with the aim to not lose the game. In 80 minutes we obviously wanted to win the game, but in the last 10 minutes you could see that we tightened things up and held for the draw.
“We came here to win the game. It’s their home game and it’s down to them to bring it to us. With five minutes to go you have to reorganise and say, ‘okay this isn’t a bad point away from home’.”
He added: “We don’t want to lose the game – we would have loved to win it, but if we don’t win it then we don’t want to lose the game. It’s nice to get a clean sheet as well.
“It keeps us there, keep us there with the rest of them.”
