Having begun the season in ideal fashion, Chelsea welcome Cardiff City to Stamford Bridge on Saturday afternoon, the home side hoping to extend Maurizio Sarri's record to five wins from five as the Italian boss begins to imprint his style upon them.
Terry made 36 appearances last season in the Villa team that were beaten by Fulham in Championship play-off final. I think his philosophy of living life is already great because he wants to enjoy every day, he wants to be happy and he wants to take this opportunity to start another chapter in his life.
"I said before I want to give space to the young players", Sarri added. I am talking about a week ago.
"Mentally the match after the break is always very hard. We need another step to be at the same level", said the Blues head coach.
"My mind was always like that, always when I arrive here my plan was to stay here as long as possible and now I am here five years I hope stay five more!" This is his home of course.
"It is very hard to recover 30 points in one season, very hard".

Ruben Loftus-Cheek is a doubt for the game with an injury, while Emerson and Davide Zappacosta are also unlikely to feature.
Cesar Azpilicueta will again lead out Chelsea against Cardiff despite the fact that Sarri has not decided on his permanent captain, as the Italian wants to discuss his choice with the players and the club before making his appointment public. "Mentally after the break it is hard", he said.
But the timing of the fixture makes a damaging setback more likely according to Sarri, who said that he encountered a similar problem during his time in charge of Napoli. At the moment he is able to be on the bench.
"My father told me to stop in the last 20 years, I think".
Sarri's smoking ban would be only temporary, "for one, two years, yes".
