Chelsea manager Guus Hiddink has issued a rallying call for the Blues to push up the Premier League table in what is left of their campaign.
The Stamford Bridge side were knocked out of the Champions League in midweek and followed up with FA Cup Quarter-Final defeat at Everton.
Former Blues man Romelu Lukaku did the damage on Merseyside, scoring twice in the final 12 minutes to down Hiddink's men, condemning them to a season without much left to play for.
But the former Netherlands coach is demanding his players to push as high as possible up the table.
He said: "Everyone knows where Chelsea were. The first task was to get out of the relegation zone and we did that fast, we went from 16th to 10th.
"Then there were two cups at stake. it is important now that we have the pride to play when there is nothing much at stake.
"We will be proud and play for the public."
Lukaku's double strike came between the 78th and 84th minutes, both ending in cool strikes beyond the desperate reach of Thibaut Courtois.
But the match ended with ten men on each side as both Chelsea's Diego Costa and Everton midfielder Gareth Barry were sent off in the final minutes of the cup tie.
And Costa's second yellow, for a foul on Barry, was given when it appeared that the Spaniard had bitten the former England midfielder.
But Hiddink refused to comment on the incident, claiming he has not seen it back yet.
He added: "I didn't see the Diego Costa incident. If I had have seen it I would give proper comment so it is difficult to give a comment on that.
"It was a tough game between all the players involved, they were going after him a little bit. The referee don't have to protect but must know when they are going after them.
"There is a lot of emotions still going on after the game, but when I tried to calm down and analyse, the team did rather well for 70 minutes and then we conceded."
