Before the last international break of the year, Chelsea were in fine form, and the Blues had won their last six Premier League matches and were in a comfortable position in the Premier League as Chelsea were in third place and even ahead of Manchester City.

However, Chelsea have returned from the international break and have been unable to get a win in three games. Chelsea have lost two league matches and played a 2-2 draw with Valencia in the Champions League.

Christian Pulisic has backed his side to come back stronger and believes that this period is only a test for Chelsea, and one that his team will overcome.

“Absolutely, tough times really test your character,” Pulisic said at Stamford Bridge after Saturday’s 1-0 loss to the Hammers. “Things aren’t going amazing, I would say this isn’t the worst thing so we just have to go on but now luckily in this league, we get another game midweek so we get a chance to redeem ourselves.

“It was a pretty crazy game midweek and then coming here we really wanted a good result, we came out with a lot of energy and did some things well but we just didn’t have that finishing touch. It felt like a little something was missing.

“In the season, that is what happens, there are ups and downs. We have had a few months now where people have said how well we’ve done and how everything has been going great, and I wish it would stay like that the whole year but it’s not the case, so now a couple of tougher results and we just have to go try and turn it around.”
