Chelsea captain: ‘We won’t be defensive tonight (we’ll cross the halfway line at least three times)’

Tell it to the judge John Terry. Sporting Life reports that the Chelsea skipper is telling anyone who will listen that Tuesday night’s game against Liverpool will see the Blues attack from the word go. It would make a refreshing change to see both teams go for it at Anfield but the truth is that it’s not in either team’s mentality to takes risks in defence and the stakes are simply too high anyway.

“We are coming here to win the game, we are not coming here to shut up shop,” boasted Terry. “We are coming here to score goals and put the pressure right on Liverpool.

“We do mean business. All season long we’ve shown great strength in depth in the squad with the players who have come in and kept us alive in the Champions and Barclays Leagues.”

Considering the Blues failed to win (or score) at Olympiakos, along with losing 2-1 at Fenerbahce, it’s hard to see them doing a lot of attacking this evening. Unless it’s verbally attacking the referee for having the audacity to book one of their players or give a controversial decision to the opposition. It would be nice for the matches to pass without seeing the arbiter in the spotlight anyhow.
