John Terry insists Chelsea will not give up in the race for the Premier League title and is targeting a double over current leaders Manchester United.
Chelsea's 4-0 victory at Bolton Wanderers on Monday night reduced the gap at the top to seven points, although the reigning champions have played a game more than United.
However, the Blues have to meet their title rivals home and away, and captain Terry feels those clashes will be pivotal.
"In the past we've never given up," Terry told Sky Sports following the win at Bolton.
"Man Utd are playing well at the moment, getting the right results and getting a little bit of luck as well, so maybe that will turn.
"We've still got to play them twice and if we can win both of those games we're right back in it."
Didier Drogba set Chelsea on their way at the Reebok Stadium with a stunning strike and the striker feels that, if the holders can successfully defend their title, it will rank as his best achievement during his time at the club.
Drogba said: "It would be the best achievement. It's six years since I've been here, but we have to think about the next game.
"It's good we have to play Man Utd twice. We have to win all our games and see what is to come."
Terry hailed Drogba's 30-yard thunderbolt as the best goal of the season as Chelsea enjoyed a first away win since the end of October.
The centre-half added: "Away from home it's been a while. At times we've shown very good form, but we just haven't really picked up the right result.
"Tonight everything really went well for us. Didier got us off to a great start with probably the best goal of the season so far."
