Arsenal is a big threat, says Chelsea's Terry

London, Jan.15 (ANI): England and Chelsea skipper John Terry has admitted that a resurgent Arsenal poses the biggest challenge to his club winning this year's Premier League title.

The Gunners are just two points behind Terry's Chelsea, just six weeks after Chelsea's crushing, 3-0 win at the Emirates had opened up an 11-point gap.

Since then Chelsea's form has been poor, with Carlo Ancelotti's men winning just three of their subsequent six matches, two of them fortuitously, against Portsmouth and Fulham.

Arsenal have rallied impressively with five wins in their last seven matches - and draws in their other two.

The Mirror quoted Terry, as saying: "We cannot afford any more slip-ups. Thankfully the teams in and around us have been slipping up as well, but Arsenal are right back in the frame again. When we beat them 3-0 [in November] I thought they were out of it, to be honest.

"We need to concentrate on ourselves because, apart from the Watford game, when we were brilliant, albeit against a lesser side, we haven't been playing as well. Hopefully that game will give us a boost and we can kick on now, and pull away when the other teams are slipping up," he added.

Terry has also been impressed with the way in which Ancelotti has set about building a solid team spirit at Stamford Bridge this season.

"It's the first time since I have been playing that a manager has taken everyone out and paid for it as well," he added. (ANI)
