Chelsea captain John Terry is adamant that his side will respond from their defeat to Tottenham on Wednesday night.

The Blues remain top of the Premier League by five points despite falling to a 2-0 defeat to their rivals at White Hart Lane.

Two headers from midfielder Dele Alli either side of half-time did the damage, with Chelsea unable to find their rhythm after a strong Spurs performance in front of their own fans.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side moved into third after they ended Chelsea’s 13-match winning run although Terry has refused to panic.

The former England captain missed the clash through injury but took to Instagram to try and lift the rest of the squad following the defeat.

He said: “Naturally we’re disappointed to lose tonight, but let’s not forget what a great run of games we have been on and the attitude and performances we have shown in these games to put us in this position.

“We’re still top of the league and that’s where we want to be, come the end of May. We will pick ourselves up and go again @chelseafc.”

Antonio Conte’s men are next in action on Sunday afternoon when they travel to Peterborough for an FA Cup third-round clash against the League One outfit.

Chelsea are expected to reach the fourth round and are priced at 6.50 to win the competition this season.
