Terry texted West Ham defender Collins: If you beat Tottenham, there's a night out on the Chelsea boys!

West Ham defender James Collins has revealed Chelsea captain John Terry texted him prior to the Hammers 1-0 defeat of Tottenham last week.

Spurs needed a win in the match to ensure the title race would continue, and Collins says Terry added a little extra incentive for the West Ham players before the clash.

"John Terry text me and Mark Noble saying, "If you boys beat Tottenham there's a dinner or a night out on the Chelsea boys," so that was nice." Collins told Betway Insider.

"But we wanted to beat Tottenham anyway. We're lucky we did in the end looking at the result we got after that [a 4-0 loss against Liverpool].

"It was a massive result, it put us safe and obviously to beat our closest rivals at home was massive."
