John Terry believes Chelsea relish the packed end-of-season schedule and has called for the Blues to use Saturday’s 1-0 defeat of Everton as a catalyst for a strong run.
Terry’s last-gasp goal ensured a winning feeling for Chelsea as they travel to Instanbul on Wednesday to play Didier Drogba’s Galatasaray in their Champions League last-16 first-leg tie, before a London derby with Fulham in the Barclays Premier League next weekend.
Jose Mourinho has continually downplayed Chelsea’s title chances, but the Blues lead the standings ahead of their trip to Turkey and Terry is eager for further improvement.
“It’s important for us now to kick on, especially with a busy period,” the captain told Chelsea TV.
“When we play three games in a week I think it suits the lads.
“Everyone looks at it and thinks it might take its toll. But when you’re playing three games a week you play, light training, play again and there’s not much time to think.
“Hopefully that’s the cobwebs gone (after the draw at West Brom and FA Cup loss to Manchester City) and we can kick on again.”
