John Terry : We Would Stop Man City

Manchester City's imperious form this season has led many to think that they are on course to break the Premier League records for points (95) and goals (103) in a campaign, leading many to suggest they might be the greatest team in the competition's history.

Taking the opposing side of the debate is former Chelsea captain, John Terry. According to the ex international, the Chelsea team he captained to back-to-back Premier League titles in 2004-05 and 2005-06 under Mourinho would be confident of beating this City side.
"I would say 2004-05 or 2005-06, those first two sides when Mourinho arrived at the club [would beat City]," Terry said during an appearance on Sky Sports' "Monday Night Football" TV show.

"We were never afraid to say: 'They'll have more possession than us,' but we were set, comfortable. The full-backs [William Gallas and Paulo Ferreira] 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 [Damien Duff and Arjen Robben], and [Frank] Lampard would be box-to-box game after game."
City who were 1 : 0 victors the last time they played Chelsea at Stamford Bridge will return to action on Saturday as they host Bournemouth.
