Chelsea captain John Terry has been revelling in his club’s domestic triumph insisting The Blues fully deserve their acclaim. Chelsea clinched their fourth domestic league championship on Sunday after crushing Wigan Athletic 8-0 at Stamford Bridge. The West London outfit needed a win to guarantee their crown but cruised to a monumental win over Roberto Martinez’s side.

Terry has had his fair share of ups and downs this season with his off field activities dominating the front pages. The former England captain’s form has also been questioned by critics but four years of built up frustration watching Manchester United dominate England’s top flight are finally vanquished.

“This feels magnificent. It’s been three hard years seeing Manchester United lift it. We’ve got it back now and we need to do what United have done and maintain this success for a few years.” Rejoiced Terry

“Seeing them win it has been hard, but it’s ours again today. It’s been an up and down year, really tough, but we deserve it. Nothing could have made me more determined to win the trophy. I’ve been hurting inside for three years seeing United with it, and every one of us was sitting there feeling the same thing. It’s their turn to sit and watch today.”

It’s been a record breaking season for the skipper and his club as they smashed their goals tally for a single season netting an astonishing 140 times with 103 coming in the league. The Pensioners front line have netted seven goals in three home fixtures against Sunderland, Villa, Stoke and another eight coming on Sunday . Their goal difference of +71 is also a new league record.

Dynamic midfielder Frank Lampard also had his say on the clubs success. The former Hammer has endured his best ever season in terms of goals by netting 27 times, with 22 coming in the league. It is a truly astonishing feat for a midfield player. The England man rates this year’s title win as even sweeter than the previous two under Jose Mourinho due to this season’s competition from other rivals.

“This is right up there, the way we’ve finished the season in such style.” He said.

“We deserved to come out on top. The first two titles [2005, 2006] we won relatively easily. They were very special because they were the first ones, but with the difficulties we’ve had this year, that was very, very special.”
