Chelsea captain John Terry has urged the club to push on and turn their season around following their 1-0 win over Norwich City, London Evening Standard reports.
The Blues were runaway winners of the Premier League last season and were front-runners to retain the title, but after 13 league games played Jose Mourinho’s men sit 15th on the table with just four victories so far.
Mourinho’s job was also under intense scrutiny after three successive defeats, but club owner Roman Abramovich gave the Portuguese the vote of confidence and he has responded to his faith with a win.
And a relieved Terry believes that the champions can turn their campaign around with a series of good results till the end of the year, starting with their Champions League clash against Maccabi Tel Aviv on Tuesday.
“We’re delighted to win,” Terry said.
“Relieved as well. Picking up three points has been a really good feeling. Good performance to top it off as well.
“Hopefully we can put ourselves on a good run of games now and climb up this table.
“We can build on this now and hopefully get another win on Tuesday.”
A win against Maccabi in Israel will guarantee qualification into the knock-out stages for Chelsea, who last won the competition in 2012.
