Ballack on Chelsea spirit: Everyone fights for everyone here

Chelsea midfielder Michael Ballack says there's great spirit within the Blues camp this season.

It's a bond that has developed with the side playing together for so long. Only Daniel Sturridge, Yury Zhirkov, Nemanja Matic and Ross Turnbull arrived in the summer, which did little to upset the foundations of the team.

Now with a trip to Everton tomorrow, the midfielder feels confident ahead of a hard fixture.

"We are a good team and it's great to play in a team like this," Ballack told chelseafc.com.

"Everyone fights for everyone, there is some good experience and we have played together for a few years. We play for Chelsea, that's our job, and that's why we have to win games and that's what we have to do now.

"The team are confident, settled and it's important to win, even in difficult situations."
