Chelsea skipper Terry left in awe by Lampard passing

Chelsea captain John Terry was left awe struck by the passing ability of Frank Lampard after their come-from-behind FA Cup victory over Arsenal.

Lamps hit a 50-yard crossfield ball to set up Florent Malouda for the Blues' equaliser.

But it was his instinctive link-up with Didier Drogba, which ended with a perfect 70-yard lob for the winner, that really stood out.

And JT was reminded of the same combination which won Chelsea their last trophy - the FA Cup against Manchester United in 2007.

Terry said: "Looking back, when we beat Man Utd 1-0, it was that link-up then. When Lamps doesn't score, he's vital to us because he sees things other people don't even. It was some ball to Didier - as well as Didi's strength and passion.

"But the link-up play was brilliant as well.

"Florent Malouda's come into form of late and scored a good goal.

"But when Didier plays like that, for me, he's one of the best in the world. He's unplayable for defenders."
