Terry, who had little defensive work to do during the rout, echoed his manager Jose Mourinho's sentiments.
"I think we all agree - Manchester City are the strongest side," Terry told Sky Sports. "They've shown that in games they performed, and they've got games in hand as well.
"It's great to have the points on the board at the moment, but for sure they've got a bigger and better squad, a lot of firepower up front. They have a game in the week against Barcelona. If they go out (of the Champions League) it only strengthens their chances."
