John Terry’ Favourite – Manchester City
In talkSPORT chat, former Chelsea captain John Terry justified his opinion on Manchester City. He said, “I’ve said Man City from the start [for the title]. We [Aston Villa] played against them recently, and they are the kind of team that, no matter how you play, if they are on it, they can beat anyone in the league.“
“I think they are the best team, they have the best individuals, and when they are at it they are by far the best team. They are showing that with their recent run. When you play against them the movement is incredible and you really don’t know what to do.“
“It’s one of those games where you come off and can only learn from it really, how well they move and the options they give each other on the pitch. They make it so difficult for the opposition team. So they are the ones for me.” (Caughtoffside)
