City lead the Premier League table by 11 points after just 18 games and have dropped just two points across the entire campaign, drawing 1-1 with Everton in their first home fixture of the season.
Terry lifted the Premier League title for Chelsea under both Antonio Conte as well as Jose Mourinho and while comparing the two decorated managers, the ex-Blues captain stated that the Italian's training sessions were much harsher.
When asked if Chelsea would beat them, Terry told Sky Sports: "Yes, yes. Yeah (I think we'd beat them)".
In a later segment, JT was drafted in to talk about this year's all-conquering Manchester City side, which of course would be smacked down by Chelsea's all-conquering 2004-06 side.
"The full-backs [William Gallas and Paulo Ferreira] would always go up the pitch, and [Claude] Makelele would always sit, which was great for us centre-backs".
"But what we had was great legs, great strength and power, but we had the big man up front".
"But we had that ball into Didier, he was so good, he used to hold it up, he could hold it up and then you'd have the runners off of him, Lamps [Frank Lampard] would be box-to-box every game".
"Probably not as much nowadays, you certainly wouldn't get away with as much, but also I'm not sure you'd get near some of them now, the pace of Sane, De Bruyne, Sterling as well, blimey".
You'd have to think that side, and the Chelsea team the season after, would be able to go toe-to-toe with any English side in history.
