John Terry talking tough...but running scared?

Following a very narrow one-nil win over Newcastle United at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday night the Chelsea skipper John Terry took time out to warn league leaders Manchester United that the best is still to come from the boys in blue.

The fact that Terry is even talking about United provides further evidence that Chelsea are genuinely concerned about United's credentials.

Terry says that Chelsea can go on to another level of performance while United are playing at the top of their game, he might have a point. However, what the Chelsea skipper doesn't mention is that this season the champions have looked less than a combined unit. All too often this new blues formation has looked disjointed and lacking balance, much of this is due to the summer arrivals of Ballack and in particular Shevchenko whose presence in the team has led to Jose Mourinho playing without specialist widemen. Added to which the fall-out between Shevchenko and Mourinho seems to be widening by the week. The Chelsea manager had to once again explain his decision to bench the Ukrainian striker in his post-match interview. To rub salt into Shevchenko's wounds Jose hinted again that Drogba is special, as the Ivory Coast striker played while injured after coming on at half-time.

Chelsea can talk all day long about what they are going to do, but from the outside looking in the blues camp doesn't look to be a totally happy one.

Terry talking up a good game - let us see the reality come the end of the season
