West Ham prevailed with a 1-0 victory against Tottenham when the sides met at London Stadium on May 5th, with the result providing Chelsea with a major boost in their quest to win the Premier League title.
Chelsea were later crowned champions, with Terry, who had a spell at West Ham as a youth player, now set to treat Slaven Bilic’s squad to a night out.
Collins told Betway: “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.”
“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.
“It’s all about the tactics on the night, you change formations, change tactics for each team you play,” he added. “Credit to the gaffer he got it spot on and we stopped them.
“Obviously we watched a lot of videos on how they play and obviously the gaffer and his staff have looked into how they play and set up the team to stop them scoring and hopefully we could get one, which we did.”
West Ham were hugely impressive in dispatching of Tottenham but, in stark contrast, they were woeful last weekend as they fell to a 4-0 defeat against Liverpool.
The Hammers will be determined to finish the season on a high when they play Burnley away on Sunday, although there remains a considerable amount of uncertainty surrounding the club, especially with regards to Bilic’s future, following some disappointing results this season.
