Chelsea skipper Terry: Man City are title contenders

Chelsea captain John Terry believes Manchester City can win the title this season.

Chelsea saw their perfect start to the league campaign derailed at Eastlands last Saturday, when Carlos Tevez's goal gave City a 1-0 victory.

"The way that City played against us, they are definitely title contenders," Terry said. "They have certainly got the players to do so and any big side going there is going to find it difficult because they always raise their game. It's against the smaller sides that they have found it difficult.

"Saturday's defeat was one of those things for us. I've seen quite a bit of City and they have not looked great, if I'm honest. But they were excellent against us, it was their best game of the season. They are going to get encouragement from that, from beating the in-form side in the league."
