Chelsea captain John Terry is delighted that his side got three points after a 1-0 win against Norwich on Saturday.
A Diego Costa goal in the 64th minute made sure that the Premier League champions ended their run of three straight defeats in the league.
‘The performances have been there of late, just not the results,’ Terry said after the clash at Stamford Bride, reports chelseafc.com. 'So I am delighted to get the three points on the board and you could see the relief and the delight from the other players as well.
"It was a good performance and hopefully this is a step in the right direction for us.
‘It was about being patient. Our build-up play was creating a lot of chances on goal, which we have been doing of late as well, so we are pleased with that and at half-time the manager was stressing we continue and the door will open, the goal will come, and thankfully it did.’
The former England captain also revealed that pressure was not building up on Diego Costa prior to his first goal in a month.
‘Not when strikers are getting into those positions to score goals,’ he explained. ‘Diego is a great finisher and it will always come. If he is not getting in those positions for the chances then I think it is a problem but he was there today and was unlucky with a couple in the first half, and it was a great finish from him in the second half.
‘ Eden Hazard is back to his best and not only this Saturday, the last five or six games you have seen from everybody the raising in performances individually and collectively and with this result, the delight and the relief from players is there to see.
‘It is a big week now with the Champions League. We have got one win out the way with hopefully more to come.'
