Captain John Terry has told his Chelsea team mates they cannot be considered a great Chelsea side until they land silverware to go with performances, according to the Daily
Thanks to their 5-0 demolition of Swansea City the Blues retained their spot at the top of the table and on course for an unprecedented quadruple – with Manchester City’s loss to Arsenal giving them a three point cushion to their rivals.
The club now face two midweek tests in seven days as they take on Liverpool in the Capital One Cup semi-final either side of an FA Cup fourth round tie at the weekend.
And Terry – who has won 12 trophies during his time at the club – has made it clear his team mates need to deliver this season to be considered one of the great sides at Stamford Bridge.
He said: “People can say we are a great side, we have top, top players, but until we go and win things, it’s not there yet. That will be the test.
“We have shown in the first half of the season that we are capable of pushing the top sides and that is what we aim to do.
“Our motivation in the dressing room is to win the league, push on in the Capital One Cup, the Champions League and the FA Cup.”
Terry has moved into third in the all-time appearances list at the club on 649 – now sitting above close friend Frank Lampard who left the club in the summer.
He will be looking to make it a 650th to remember at fierce rivals Liverpool on Tuesday.
