With Tottenham breathing on Chelsea’s neck in the title race earlier this month, a win against West Ham would have taken Spurs a point closer to Chelsea, pending Chelsea’s game against Middlesbrough.
West Ham eventually beat Spurs and the pressure was off Chelsea, and Hammers boss Slaven Bilic revealed afterwards that Nemanja Matic had offered to buy him dinner if his team won.
Well, it appears that it wasn’t only Matic who made such proposal. Chelsea captain John Terry also did something similar.
West Ham defender James Collins has revealed that Terry offered to buy dinners for him and Mark Noble if they could beat Tottenham.
“John Terry text me and Mark Noble saying, ‘If you boys beat Tottenham there’s a dinner or a night out on the Chelsea boys,’so that was nice,” Collins told Betway Insider.
“But we wanted to beat Tottenham anyway. We’re lucky we did in the end looking at the result we got after that [a 4-0 loss against Liverpool]. It was a massive result, it put us safe and obviously to beat our closest rivals at home was massive.”
