"I watched Arsenal beat Milan [on Tuesday]," said the England international. "It was fantastic and great to see. Arsenal are a very good footballing side but we knocked the ball about superbly against Olympiakos [on Wednesday] and I'd like to think people are talking about Chelsea in the past when they talk about us playing it long-ball. I think we showed against Olympiakos and West Ham [on Saturday] that we can play anyone off the pitch."
Terry also was quick to praise coach Avram Grant over the way they've bounced back since last week's Carling Cup final defeat.
"Credit to the manager and everyone else," said Terry. "We've done well up until the Tottenham game. But after a defeat at any big team you have to look at yourselves and ask why you got beat. We've responded superbly."
