John Terry didn't hesitate when naming Chelsea's two best players against Manchester City

John Terry didn't hesitate when naming Chelsea's two best players against Manchester City

Terry has had his say.

John Terry has named the two players that stood out for Chelsea during their 1-1 draw with Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium.

Mauricio Pochettino's side entered Manchester looking to back up their 3-1 win over Crystal Palace on Monday evening, which had moved them into the top half of the Premier League table.

They started brightly against City, and took the lead on 42 minutes through Raheem Sterling's composed finish into the corner of the net.

The second half was primarily an exercise in defending, with City launching 17 shots at Chelsea's goal.

But they couldn't find a breakthrough until 83 minutes, when Rodri's shot from the edge of the area fired off the body of Trevoh Chalobah and into the back of the net.

City looked as if they would go on to take all three points at that stage, but were unable to go on to get the winner, meaning that both sides shared the spoils.

And taking to X (Twitter), Chelsea legend and four-time Premier League winner Terry was quick to name two players that impressed him in what was a strong team performance.

He wrote: "Great performance. We looked solid and posed a threat on the counter attack, Axel Disasi and Malo Gusto both excellent.

"Brilliant from everyone."

Jamie Carragher agreed with Terry's assessment of Disasi while in the Sky Sports studio after the game, stating: "I can't remember a better defensive performance this season.

"That was a John Terry performance."

As per WhoScored, Disasi's dominance in the air meant he won four aerial duels - more than any other defender on the pitch at the Etihad Stadium.


The point could end up being crucial for Pochettino's young Blues side, who still hold ambitions of qualifying to play in Europe next season with a strong end to the Premier League season.

City, meanwhile, are now four points behind league leaders Liverpool with an inferior goal difference, although do have a game in hand on both the Reds and Arsenal ahead of them.
