Chelsea captain John Terry claims he and fellow defender Branislav Ivanovic were “double headlocked at every corner” during the Premier League leaders’ 1-1 draw at Manchester United on Sunday. Press Association Terry wrote: “It shows how well we are playing when you come away from Old Trafford disappointed with 1 point. “Thanks to all the travelling fans for your great support. “#JtandIVAgotdoubleheadlockedfromeverycorner.” The Blues remained unbeaten but were denied an eighth win from nine matches by Robin van Persie’s last-gasp goal, which cancelled out Didier Drogba’s header. Van Persie’s equaliser came after Ivanovic had been sent off for two bookable offences after twice fouling Angel di Maria, but Terry suggested on Instagram that it was the Chelsea right-back and himself who were sinned against, rather than being the sinners.
