Chelsea captain John Terry wants to see his struggling team-mates collect all three Premier League points when they take on Everton this weekend.
The Toffees travel to Stamford Bridge on Saturday and, Terry, who has been hampered with a hamstring problem, is hopeful the Pensioners can get their title charge back on track after a recent barren spell.
Just one win from their previous five league outings has allowed Manchester United to jump to the top of the tree, but Terry is confident they can turn the corner heading into the Christmas period.
"We have dropped too many points recently," he said."Looking back only two or three weeks ago we were so many points clear and in the goal difference as well. Now both gaps have been closed.
"We need to get back to winning ways sooner rather than later. I think we have played well the last couple of games and on another day three or four may have gone in.
"At times you need to work hard and push for your luck. It's not going to be given to you in life and sometimes you need to make your own if it's not happening for you.
"We have been a bit unfortunate with a couple of goals we have let in as well. I think overall defensively, midfield and attack, we've not been as good as we should have been. That's because we set our standards so high and started the season so well."
