After finishing 9 points behind United and losing out on the title for the fourth time in the past five years, Chelsea captain John Terry has revealed the hurt inflicted by our success.

“We all see the quality they have got, the hunger they have still got and the manager has,” said Terry. “When I see that it really drives me on. They have set the benchmark for everybody over the last 20 years which we are all trying to catch and achieve. When I saw them lift this trophy last year it still hurts today. I want to get my hands back on this and lift it. he competition is improving year in, year out, the players are getting stronger and the managers want it a lot more. I am worried about a lot of teams. Everyone out there has strengthened.”
