Chelsea will be back in Premier League action again this Saturday after yet another bland international break.
The Blues would have ideally liked to have kept playing because they have been getting better results and putting on better performances of late. They would have liked to have kept the momentum going by continuing to play games, but instead they had to wait.
The tough games keep coming though and next they are up against Newcastle United, who have looked very good this season at times.
Chelsea will feel confident though, and defender Marc Cucurella has been speaking about just why they are ‘building something’ special at the club right now, but the pressure of playing for Chelsea is not the same as playing for a ‘normal club’.
As is what has become the norm in an international break, Chelsea have been releasing some interesting interviews with players on their website.
Cucurella says: “When you come to a big club, for sure the pressure is there. When you go to a normal club, there is not this pressure. It’s different. You need to win but the objectives are different. Here at Chelsea, every week, every game, you have to win. Otherwise the team and fans aren’t happy. That is the big difference.
“We are creating good habits here, a good young team, and are starting to build something important. It’s not enough so far because we want to win every game but I think the way we are playing now is good.
“We need to keep producing our best performance and manage the small details, mistakes. Once we do this, we can win more games and the pressure is eased.”
