Chelsea captain backs champions’ return to form following 3-0 win over Palace

Chelsea captain John Terry is adamant that the club are getting back to their previous best following their victory over Crystal Palace on Sunday, according to reports from the Mirror.

The Blues claimed their biggest win of the season by defeating the Eagles 3-0 at Selhurst Park, with Oscar, Willian, and Diego Costa getting on the score-sheet.

The champions are now on a three-game unbeaten streak under the management of Guus Hiddink, who replaced Jose Mourinho as the interim boss last month after the Portuguese was sacked by the board due to a series of disappointing results.

And despite being disappointed of the board’s decision to let go of Mourinho, Terry believes their form has finally turned and are now back on track for the second half of the campaign.

“This was the Chelsea of last year, the football was first-class and we kept the ball in tough conditions,” he said.

“The overall performance, as well as the goals, was different class. New year, new start.

“We have to keep winning games. We’ve had a couple of draws of late and been unlucky not to win more points, we’re delighted with three today.”

Chelsea play their next three games in front of their homes fans at Stamford Bridge, starting with an FA Cup tie against Scunthorpe before Premier League clashes against West Bromwich Albion and Everton.
