This season has been a season of ups and downs with a lot of funny results along the way, and many clubs have been through a rough patch.
For Chelsea, the Blues had gone on an unbeaten run of 17 games without tasting defeat, but went into a rough patch, winning only once in five games.
Chelsea boss Frank Lampard is under pressure to turn things around, but the Blues boss has maintained that his side will pick up, and that every side has had their down time.
Lampard said: “If you look at this season, everybody has had their difficult periods, inconsistency has been rife. I think there are multiple reasons for that. Of course we’re searching for that consistency that took us 17 games unbeaten. We did that for a reason because we were doing the basics well, energy in the team was good, and those have slightly dropped off.
“Sometimes that’s natural, it’s par for the course when you’re fighting to get to where you want to be. Teams that we’re praising for winning trophies have gone through these periods and more.
“So it’s head-down time, head down and work and not consider the table too much. We know we’re there or thereabouts but the only thing that will change it in a positive manner is us just going game to game.”
