Chelsea boss Di Matteo admits they were flat for win over Wigan

Chelsea boss Roberto di Matteo admits they weren't at their best for victory over Wigan Athletic.

Di Matteo admitted the Blues suffered a hangover from Wednesday night's Champions League win over Benfica, despite making seven changes.

"After you play a midweek game in the Champions League, there's always a concern that you might have a little hangover for the weekend game," he said.

"And even though I tried to make a number of changes for today's game to energise the team, I think the first half, we didn't really get into the game.

"The tempo was slow and the intensity was low.

"There's always that concern when you play midweek."
