Friday, November 5 may come to be remembered among Chelsea fans as the day John Terry joined Twitter.

The Blues’ legendary No. 26 has shaken up the footballing social media world with his unexpected arrival on the social media site to the delight of all Chelsea supporters and to the annoyance of many rival fans.

Despite all the banter ongoing throughout the first few days of Terry’s Twitter reign, there were some serious questions posed to the defender that were answered.

Thoughts on Manchester United’s current predicament coupled with Frank Lampard’s speciality to develop youth players ahead of key Norwich City decision were two topics covered but United’s local rivals Man City were also at the forefront of the agenda.

The Cityzens closed the gap on the west Londoners in game week 11 of this year’s Premier League after Pep Guardiola’s side eased to a 2-0 victory in the Manchester derby, whilst Thomas Tuchel’s side were punished for their lack of ruthlessness in front of goal as Chelsea were held by Burnley at Stamford Bridge.

Thankfully for both aforementioned sides in the title race, Liverpool fell to their first defeat in 25 league games after Kurt Zouma and his West Ham colleagues defeated Jurgen Klopp’s in a gripping contest on Sunday evening.

A topsy turvy race is ahead now with all three teams capable of dropping unexpected points at any time meaning this Premier League campaign may go down to the wire.

But Terry himself has hinted at one key advantage Guardiola and his side have over Tuchel’s outfit with his City verdict when asked about their style of play and manager.

Replying to a tweet about the Manchester derby from cricket legend Kevin Pietersen, Terry wrote wrote: “Two teams [City and United] who are worlds apart.

“Man City are a joy to watch in possession, and a great example to teams nowhere near as good as them out of possession.

“Pep drives and demands that from every single player, every ship needs one captain and he is the best.”

Nonetheless, the 40-year-old did praise the Champions League winning manager Tuchel on the impact he has made at a crucial time for the west London outfit since Lampard was sacked, a move which was greeted with some hostility at the time.

Terry said of Tuchel: ‘He has been superb since he arrived [followed by a blue heart emoji].’

Everton and Leicester City are the next two opponents for Manchester City and Chelsea, respectively, as both look to keep Liverpool at arm’s length after the international break comes to an end.
