John Terry has admitted that he “loves” beating London-rivals Tottenham, after Chelsea saw off Spurs 4-2 in the FA Cup semi-final at the weekend.
The Chelsea skipper didn’t play any part in the match against Mauricio Pochettino’s side, despite Gary Cahill missing the clash at Wembley due to illness.
However, despite Terry failing to make it off of the bench, he still relished every minute of the victory.
Writing in tonight’s programme notes ahead of his team’s Premier League clash with Southampton at Stamford Bridge, Terry claims it “doesn’t get much better” than beating Spurs in the FA Cup semi-final:

Chelsea’s victory over Spurs not only sealed their place in the final, where they will play Arsenal on May 27, but could end up affecting the momentum in the title race.
Tottenham currently trail Antonio Conte’s team by four points heading into the final few weeks of the season, with just six games to go.
