Chelsea captain John Terry has warned his teammates that they cannot afford to become complacent after making a flying start to the new Premier League season, Sky
The West London club enters the second international break of the campaign having won six of their opening seven league games, a run which has seen them open up a five-point gap over champions Manchester City in second. Summer signing Diego Costa already has nine goals, including one in Sunday’s 2-0 victory over Arsenal.
Terry has been part of a defence which has conceded only seven goals in that time, and while his side have made almost the best possible start, he has warned his colleagues that things could easily change. He said: “Clearly it (the title race) is not over. Other teams have been in this position. It’s nice to have the lead but when you’re at the top everyone wants to shoot you down.
“That’s the good thing about the Premier League and why everyone loves it. Teams are out to get us because we are at the top and playing well. The international break is here and we need to come back and maintain our form after that as well. It’s very important we do that.’
