TERRY: WHAT WE ASKED FOR
John Terry was satisfied with how the team responded to defeat with a big home win on Wednesday evening.
The captain led his side to a third straight Champions League Group D victory, meaning we are just one win away from securing our place in the last 16, the perfect way to bounce back after losing 2-1 at Aston Villa on Saturday.
'I think it's what we wanted after the disappointment away to Villa, and we got what we asked for,' the captain said.
'I think we started well in the Champions League with three clean sheets and three wins. In other years we have started well and got ourselves in the hat early on, which gives the manager options to bring in other players and try new things but we have a few games to go, we go to Atletico next and if we can start well there and get the fans on their backs it would be a nice win to put ourselves through.'
The 4-0 win against Atletico maintains our perfect home record in 2009/10, a contrast to our stuttering away form where set pieces have cost us against Villa and Wigan in recent weeks.
'Everyone will go through conceding goals from set plays, the percentages are about 55, 60 per cent. We are no different, we have looked at it, adjusted and improved tonight and now we move on,' Terry stated.
'It's strange because last year we threw away too many points at home and our away form was immaculate, so we are on the other foot this time. It is nice for us here and it would be nice to go away and get a win.'
The 28-year-old believes credit must go to Salomon Kalou for his strength of mind after missing early chances, going on to score the first two goals before a Frank Lampard strike and an own goal put the icing on the cake.
'He keeps plugging away and it's refreshing when people like Didier [Drogba]are out we have the likes of Sala to come in and give the manager food for thought for the next game,' Terry said. 'Bella [Juliano Belletti] came in tonight and did well too, because he trains hard and keeps himself fit. I think they proved themselves tonight.'
