Chelsea captain John Terry is eyeing four trophies this season

Chelsea skipper John Terry is chasing success on all fronts this season - insisting the current crop of Stamford Bridge stars need to win silverware to be considered greats.

Jose Mourinho takes his Blues to Anfield tonight for the first leg of their League Cup semi-final clash having witnessed a fine performance and 5-0 win at Swansea on Saturday.

That, coupled with reigning champions Manchester City losing to Arsenal, leaves Chelsea five points clear at the top of the Premier League.

They also face an FA Cup fourth-round tie with Bradford at the weekend, with their Champions League round of 16 clash with Paris St Germain also on the horizon.

And Terry wants the club to fight for every title available as the class of 2014/15 looks to add their names to the Chelsea history books.

"We've got top, top players but, as I've said before, until we go and win things, it's not there yet," the former England captain said.

"That will be the test. We've shown during the first half of the season that we're capable of pushing the top sides and that's what we aim to do. There is a motivation in the dressing room to win the league and push on in the Capital One Cup, Champions League and FA Cup.

"At this stage, to still be involved in all competitions is where you want to be, and it's down to big players to step up."

The win at the Liberty Stadium was Terry's 649th appearance for Chelsea and takes him clear of Frank Lampard into third place on the all-time list for the Blues. The 34-year-old will lead the side out at Liverpool but expects a stern test.

"In the first half at Swansea, the football and the goals were some of the best I've seen. Myself and Gaz (Gary Cahill) felt like we weren't doing much apart from applauding what we were seeing. It was a delight to watch and I hope we continue that.

"It (Anfield) is going to be a tough place to go. I think Daniel Sturridge might be back, (Raheem) Sterling is back as well and they proved when we went up there in the league that it's always a tough game."
