Cesar Azpilicueta is certain Chelsea will recover from their current setback, as he is sure they will return to winning ways.
Chelsea lost 4-1 to Watford, playing an abysmal game, as Bakayoko was sent off inside 30 minutes.
That loss was preceded by a 3-0 thumping at the hands of Bournemouth. And Chelsea now sit fourth and one point ahead of Tottenham.
“We are Chelsea, a big club – and when we lose one game it’s a bad time for us,” Azpilicueta told the club’s official website after a humbling defeat at Vicarage Road – Chelsea’s first loss to Watford in any competition since 1999.
“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.”
“Of course it’s very difficult to take, we’ve had two heavy defeats and obviously we are really disappointed. It’s a massive setback for us.
“Against Bournemouth, in 15 minutes we conceded three goals and in that period when we are bad we need to try to manage and pass through the time in the best way possible.”
