Chelsea have lost their last two league games, and this has seen the Blues drop to 5th position and nine points behind league leaders Manchester City.

However, Chelsea boss Antonio Conte believes his squad has what it takes to get back on the right path, and quickly.

“We have to find the strength to overcome this moment,” Conte said.

“I know my squad and my players very well. I have players with great will to work and to fight.

“We must be unhappy after a defeat, above all if the defeat is not one but two in a row. This is not a positive moment for many reasons. We are playing without important players and every game we are having a new injury, but I trust all my players and I try to give everyone the opportunity to take their chance.”

Chelsea is more than just a football club to me; it's a passion I share, and my affinity with the Chelsea badge is one that will last forever. As far as watching my favourite team is concerned, I'd rather miss a meal than miss a Chelsea game.
