Chelsea’s run of big games started against Arsenal, and the Blues could only get a 2-2 draw in that game. The next big game against Leicester City also ended in a 2-2 draw at the King Power Stadium.

After the winter break, Chelsea returned to action with yet another big game against Manchester United at Stamford Bridge, but the Blues lost this time 2-0.

Chelsea have been unable to get a win in the league in the last four attempts, and the Blues now have a must not lose game to Tottenham at Stamford Bridge on Saturday afternoon. And after this weekend’s game is a massive Champions League tie against Bayern Munich next week Tuesday.

Chelsea midfielder Mateo Kovacic has warned his side to get back their form ahead of these massive encounters.

“We need to improve a lot because we have tough games ahead of us and we have to be focused,” admitted Kovacic. “We have to train hard every day, to prepare our games better and try to avoid our mistakes because we are making too many mistakes in these kind of matches and you get punished.

“We have a good week ahead of us to prepare for Tottenham and to play a good match. We know this match means a lot for us because Tottenham are close behind us so we need to prepare ourselves quite a lot to win this game at home.

“We are still fourth so we are still in a good position but we need to wake up because they are coming from behind. We need to play these next games like we were playing in the beginning of the season and change some things as well, obviously.”
