Terry made his 716th Chelsea appearance and likely his penultimate one at Stamford Bridge, scoring his 67th goal.
Terry will play his final game for the Blues at Stamford Bridge this Sunday before lifting the Premier League trophy. "It depends if the right offer comes... but I haven't made any decisions yet and I am just evaluating my options".
Only with the Premier League title already sealed was Terry restored to the heart of a defense he commanded for so many seasons, before age finally proved his greatest opponent.
It was a performance that not only highlighted the attacker's clear commitment to the Blues, but also how influential he could be for them once again next season - especially considering Antonio Conte's side will be battling it out in the Champions League as well.
And after the match Conte set his players a new target of becoming the first team in Premier League history to reach the 30-win mark.
Terry has been on the bench for most of Chelsea's title winning campaign.
Chelsea captain John Terry "should absolutely not retire" from professional football, according to Antonio Conte.
"That's our B team against a team that are mid-table and that shows you the standard", he continued.
"I know I said I wanted to play regular football, but I have not ruled out Sunday being my last game and retiring", he said.
Terry, whose achievements on the pitch were often marred by his behaviour off it, told the BBC his defensive blunder in letting Etienne Capoue make it 1-1 should serve as a lesson to young children.
"It is going to be a really sad and emotional day for me", Terry added.
"At the moment I have 13 or 14 players who deserve to play the FA Cup final who are in very good form".
And, though Conte wants to focus on his side's FA Cup final clash with Arsenal, he admits he needs several signings to compete in Europe. "I want to play [against Sunderland], I want to play every game".
In 2015, he won his second Premier League title, this time under Jose Mourinho, Mikel played 18 times and also scored no goal.
