Chelsea’s technical and performance advisor Roman has now told the team what they need to do with their mindset in order to get back on track.

“This week we experienced two defeats which is something new for us, I have to say. It’s been a long time since the team had back-to-back defeats,” Cech wrote on the official Chelsea website.

“When you play for a big team, you always have this pressure on every result. The players are used to that presure

“It’s never nice to prepare for a game, do everything that’s needed and then the result is wrong.

“We have a group of players and staff who are here to win, so every result which doesn’t go our way leaves a feeling you need to overcome. What’s needed is the team finds the right reaction to that.

“It increases the importance of the weekend game because you want to bounce back, especially at home and in the league, where we are in a really good position.

“The one advantage you have is when there is a short period between games, you don’t have too much time to dwell on it. You just prepare and go again. That’s maybe one thing which is helpful.

“In my career I saw it could affect some people more than others, but you just have to come in and concentrate on the preparation for the next game because you cannot change what happens in the past. You have to keep your mind positive and on the task.

“No matter how big the disappointment you have had, or how disappointed you feel, the main part is turning the page, coming up, preparing, and finding the energy again to be positive and ready for the next match.”
