Former Chelsea ace defender, John Terry has revealed the Premier League club that can beat Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City and end their unbeaten run.
The 37-year-old believes Jose Mourinho’s Chelsea is better than the present Pep Guardiola’s Man City.
Terry said Mourinho‘s Chelsea sides in the 2004/05 and 2005/06 seasons would beat Pep Guardiola‘s current crop of Manchester City stars, despite their remarkable start to the current campaign winning 17 matches in 18 games.
The England International, who was part of a Mourinho side that set the record points tally for a Premier League season (95 in 2004/05), said the team would have the edge over Guardiola’s men.
When asked which other Premier League sides in history would compete with City, he told Sky Sports: “I would say 2004/05 or 2005/06, those two sides when Mourinho arrived at the club.”
“We were never afraid to say: “They’ll have more possession than us,” but we were set, comfortable.
“The full-backs would always go up the pitch, and [Claude] Makelele would always sit, which was great for us centre-backs. ‘But we had great legs, great power, and we had the big man up front. Didier [Drogba] made such a difference.
“We had that ball into Didier, and he could hold it up, with the runners off him and [Frank] Lampard would be box-to-box game after game,” Terry said.
