Chelsea skipper Terry hails Hiddink planning after Barcelona stalemate

Chelsea captain John Terry has revealed how the meticulous planning of manager Guus Hiddink was key to blunting Champions League opponents Barcelona last night.

Terry revealed their secret weapon was hours and hours of tape showing the Barca trio of Thierry Henry, Samuel Eto'o and Lionel Messi in devastating action.

He said: "We watched videos before the game and we know they like to play little balls through and we stopped them doing it.

"It was a brilliant performance from the whole team though because to keep a clean sheet here means defending starts at the front with Didier Drogba.

"They had a lot of possession but we stayed very tight.

"Everyone had a part to play right through the team and we got it right.

"It's a fantastic result and we go back to the Bridge ready to go again."
