John Terry: Chelsea FC squad live for games like PSG

John Terry admitted after Chelsea's dramatic Champions League victory against Paris Saint-Germain on Tuesday night that Jose Mourinho's squad live for such matches.

The Blues were outsiders to progress to the semi-finals after losing last week's last-16 first leg in the French capital 3-1, but goals by substitutes Andre Schurrle and Demba Ba, the latter scoring with just three minutes left, sealed a famous comeback for Mourinho's side and victory on the away goals rule.

There was some bad news though as Eden Hazard had to be substituted in the first half after picking up a calf injury and looks set to be sidelined for at least the next two weeks.

"I think everyone probably doubted that we would do it," Terry said.


"But I think we showed great character, great desire and will to fight no matter what, and it paid off.

"We worked a lot all week on scenarios - 1-0, 2-0, 3-1, what would we do if Demba came on. We planned to hit the big man and he has scored a great goal.

"This competition means a lot to us. The manager has been very successful and in terms of the club, we have experienced it once and had disappointments over the years as well. It keeps you fighting and keeps you believing as well.

"That one time winning it - believe me, it is the best feeling ever. And nights like tonight, when big players have put in big performances, that is what we live for."
