Chelsea captain John Terry returns against Everton on Saturday with the champions on a three game winless streak.

The Blues were top of the table after his last appearance against Fulham but now trail Manchester United by two points.

They have also failed to keep a clean sheet in that time and Carlo Ancelotti‘s defence has looked decidedly shaky without Terry at its heart.

“By the looks of things we are getting two or three players back,” said Terry.

“Hopefully Michael (Essien) will return at the weekend as will I. I have trained the last couple of days and Frank (Lampard) is not too far away.

“We have dropped too many points recently. 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.”

Terry’s return is crucial for the Blues with Brazilian defender Alex out for up to eight weeks following knee surgery.
