Matic: Working hard

Nemanja Matic is pleased we have two big games on the horizon as he believes it will provide the team with an opportunity to restore confidence.

Matic scored a wonderful goal in yesterday’s game at Everton, but ultimately it counted for very little as we were beaten 3-1.

‘Of course we are not happy,’ said the Serbian. ‘Everybody is sad because of the result. Obviously we feel bad. We are in a difficult moment, and having four points after five games is not normal for our team.

‘If you saw this game, I cannot say we deserved to win but we deserved a draw.

‘Chelsea are not used to being on runs like we are at the moment but this is the reality. We have to work hard to get our game back to the way we played last season.

‘I really don’t know what’s happened but it’s not good for us and we need to see what we can do better as a team.’

The Blues now face two successive home matches, with Wednesday’s Champions League game against Maccabi Tel Aviv preceding the visit of Arsenal next Saturday.

‘It’s good we have another game in a couple of days against Maccabi,’ said Matic. ‘We have to win, for our own confidence and for the fans. Then we have a derby against Arsenal, so I hope we will be ready for that and we can take three points.’
