Chelsea defender John Terry is adamant that the side will only get better as the season goes on.
The Blues bounced back after conceding within 20-seconds against Southampton by beating them 3-1 at Stamford Bridge thanks to some unlikely goalscorers.
Gary Cahil equalised for the hosts before Terry and Demba Ba wrapped up the three points for Jose Mourinho’s men.
Terry, who was making his 400th Premier League appearance, spoke after the game and admitted that the team will only improve throughout the season.
“The Premier League is more open than I’ve ever seen it,” Terry told Chelsea TV.
“We saw that with Hull beating Liverpool. It was important (to beat Southampton) with Man U and Liverpool dropping points. It was a chance to push on and pull away from them.
“I’m delighted that the team are playing well, my form’s very good. I can chip in with a couple of goals.
“Ideally I’d like to be sitting top of the league. I feel as though it will come and we’ll get better and better.”
“The whole game plan completely went out of the window,” admitted Terry. “A mis-kick by Mike, Pete came and went back and all of a sudden we’re 1-0 down.
“After that they dominated and had a couple more chances. First half we were like at Basle, non-existent. Second half we showed some real character.”
