The Serbian has urged his teammates to take command of games during a busy Christmas schedule, that starts with games against Derby County and Stoke City this week.
Reports in the Daily Express carry quotes from Ivanovic, who said: “We are in the period of the year where we need to only count the wins and the points.
“You know if the game is open then you can play beautifully, how you want to, but also when you’re not playing at the top level you need to win the points.
“Our next games are against physical teams and we’ll need more power to win them. We know that the games that are coming up for us will be very tough.”
Despite losing their first game of the season to Newcastle just over a week ago, Chelsea recorded a resounding 2-0 win over Hull at the weekend, while they also beat Sporting Lisbon to complete a comfortable start to their Champions League campaign.
