Chelsea captain John Terry is excited about the development of their young midfield players this season.

Juan Mata and Oscar have made a huge impact this term.

And Terry said: “Our creative players give us something extra and they are just different class. In the past, we have had some great playmakers like Robben and Duff, who could both knock the ball past someone and beat them or drift inside with it to score goals from the edge of the box.

“I think the difference with these boys now is that they come in for the ball, they look to link with the striker and then continue their movement into the box. We are now getting more and more bodies in the box, which is great because when we do that, we always see [Frank] Lampard floating behind looking for the pieces or the second ball or cut back.

“As a defender, when you have midfielders and strikers running past you and filling the box, you don’t know where to look.”
