The Blues have slipped down to fourth in the Premier League after their worst run of domestic form in a decade, their last victory coming against Fulham on November 10.
However, but for a stoppage-time penalty miss from Didier Drogba in last Sunday’s 1-1 draw at Tottenham, Chelsea would have been back to winning ways.
"I’m hoping this is the end of it," Terry told Chelsea TV ahead of the weekend visit of rivals Manchester United.
"We’ve gone through a blip, as we’ve seen other teams do. We’ve got a massive home game and it’s important now the fans stay with us, even through a bad spell in the game of 10 or 15 minutes, because when you play against a quality side, they are bound to have a good spell of possession.
"As long as we stay solid on the pitch the fans stay with us, I’m sure playing like this, we’re going to be back."
