The 30-year-old centre back, who captained Chelsea to second place last season, believes that the upcoming campaign will be a tough contest.
Despite Chelsea’s positive start to last year’s season, they eventually conceded the trophy to rivals Manchester United.
"We all see the quality [Manchester United] have got, the hunger they have still got and the manager has," Terry told reporters. "When I see that it really drives me on. They have set the benchmark for everybody over the last 20 years which we are all trying to catch and achieve.
"When I saw them lift this trophy last year it still hurts today. I want to get my hands back on this and lift it.
"There are not just one or two sides like there has been over the last four or five years, there are six or seven teams which can really push and have a chance of winning this great trophy."
The Blues are scheduled to begin their Premier League campaign with an away game to Stoke on August 14.
