Chelsea might be on the low at the moment, after two disastrous outings against Bournemouth and Watford.

The Blues were hammered 4-1 by Watford at the Vicarage Road on Monday night, and this has led to calls for Antonio Conte to be sacked. However, Chelsea vice-captain Cesar Azpilicueta has vowed that the team will fight until the end of the season.

“If you see the training sessions we fight hard,” he said. “We are disappointed with the way these last two games went, but it was over 15 minutes in the first game and 10 minutes this time. We are getting penalised in the bad moments we are having in a game, it’s not a long period but in this league, which is so tough, you get punished as soon as you drop a bit.

“As a player what I want is to get back on the training field as soon as possible, work hard for Monday’s game, get the three points and get some confidence back.”

Despite the last two results, Azpilicueta believes we can end the season in the top four, and have a good campaign in both the FA Cup and Champions League.

“We are Chelsea, a big club and when we lose one game it’s a bad time for us,” Azpilicueta said.

“Obviously to lose two in a row is even worse but I’m sure this team will fight back. We have three targets to go for and we have a massive three or four months ahead of us.”
