After the disappointing outing we had against Manchester United last week, it was expected that we bounce back and return to winning ways quickly. But somewhere inside all the hope and optimism, there were doubts that things might not pan out exactly that way.
Usually teams that suffer such a humbling defeat as we suffered against Manchester United tend to struggle for the next few matches, and our next fixture was against another top opposition in Tottenham — one of our fiercest rivals and contender for the title this season.
There was so much against us, but then, the game turned out exactly how we wanted it. We defeated Tottenham by a good margin after a keenly contested affair. Of course, it was a very difficult game for us, but we’re Chelsea, and our experience and quality counted eventually. The scoreline of the fixture is exciting, but I am particularly happy about the outcome of the game in the end.
If we hadn’t won that match, it no doubt would have affected the confidence of the players, and the drive to go until the end, especially after we lost 2-0 to Man Utd. Our players showed desire, grit and character in getting that win and after seeing them play, I am sure the team can only keep soaring.
I love and will always be proud of our dear Chelsea.
