Midfield star believes club will bounce back fast.Check in to Chelsea vs Fulham
Chelsea midfielder John Obi Mikel has backed the club to recover from suffering their first defeat of the season to Everton at the weekend, the Metro reports.
Steven Naismith’s header was enough to separate the two sides on Saturday and inflict defeat on Jose Mourinho’s men for the first time this season, which was Mourinho’s first since taking over for a second time.
The west Londoners created a number of chances but failed to put them away thanks to some questionable finishing from new boys Samuel Eto’o and Andre Schurrle.
But midfielder Mikel has insisted that nobody at the club will panic at their first defeat in four games, and believes that it won’t be long before they’re back on top form.
“It is about how we bounce back. When you know what you’ve done wrong it’s easy to bounce back. We need to go to get back training and find out what we didn’t do,” he said.
Mourinho said that he felt the side could have won the game, though the little mistakes made that prevented them from doing so will surely be eradicated once the side get used to his training regime in the coming weeks.
“We train movement, we train dynamics, we train attacking organisation, we train finishing situations,” said the Portuguese boss.
“The players are good so sooner or later we will score. If they don’t have the killer instinct they have to get it but I think they have it.
“Samuel has had it all his career and the situations he had made me happy as it looked like he had a good understanding with the team.”
