One of the most important reasons for Chelsea’s horrible start to this season has been Nemanja Matic’s bad form.
The Serbian midfielder was an incredible part of the Blues title winning last season, shielding the back four on countless number of occasions and generally being a wall in the midfield. Fast forward to this season and the 27-year-old has looked just a shadow of his usual incredible self.
Although, if the recent fixtures are anything to go by, Matic is already looking better, if still not at his level best. Hopefully, it’s just a matter of time before he gets back to being the best Defensive Midfielder in the world!
Talking to our official website, Matic insisted that he is feeling more confident now after back to back wins last week:
“The game was important to win to get some more confidence. I can say for myself I’m feeling better. When you win the feeling is always better.
“We looked better on the pitch. Maybe mentally we are stronger. We had more pressure than normal before the game because we only had four points. We recognised the situation. It was time to win. We played like one on the pitch and we fought for every ball. This is just the beginning.
“In two games we have scored six and not conceded. It’s important for confidence and team spirit, and now we have to continue in this way. We have games every three days and I think our team is ready for that. It’s going to be interesting. We will see what we can do. I am sure we can win all the games. We have quality for that and every game you play for Chelsea you have to want to win.”
It’s nice to hear that our players are getting their much-needed confidence back. Maybe it’s time we finally go on a nice, long winning streak?
Talking about Diego Costa, the Serbian showed his support for the Striker by stressing on the fact that the Spaniard is a great player:
“Everyone knows Diego is a great player.
“You know how many goals he scored last season. He is very important for us. I am happy to play with him.”

I would like to believe that everybody is more than happy to play with him rather than against him, for obvious reasons!
Now, let’s get a win against Walsall to kick start our Cup campaign.
