John Obi Mikel is convinced Chelsea can finish the season by winning an unprecedented Quadruple.
The Blues have already collected the Carling Cup and have reduced the gap to Manchester United in the Premiership title race to three points.
On Sunday, Chelsea meet Blackburn Rovers in the FA Cup semi-finals and later this month clash with Liverpool in the last four of the UEFA Champions League.
Mikel admits there is an unshakeable belief inside the Stamford Bridge dressing room that the club can end the campaign with four trophies.
"We've already got one trophy in the Carling Cup and are on course for the other three," Mikel told The Sun.
"It has never crossed our minds it is impossible.
"Even when some write us off, we have faith in ourselves. We are fighting in these competitions and our target is still intact - to win them all."
Chelsea showed resilience to beat Valencia in the Champions League quarter-finals in midweek and Mikel expects the same attitude to prevail against Liverpool.
The Nigerian added: "People were also writing us off before our trips to Barcelona and Porto, yet we came out on top.
"We've been in this situation many times, but luckily we've the experience and strength to be able to do that and it has helped us on many occasions.
"We believe that, even though we are away in the second leg against Liverpool, we can still score goals.
"We have the belief we can get through no matter where we play. Our will to win is the key."
