"[Chelsea] was unlike us so far this season. It has steeled us up for what is coming on Wednesday night and on Sunday [against Tottenham Hotspur]. We knew we were going into a tough week. We have started off really badly and can we improve on that on Wednesday?" The manager added that he and the players understood the fan frustration, claiming "we have got to try and repay all the people that come to watch us and all the ones that are going up to Anfield".
