The Blues sit in 16th place, with just 11 points from their opening 12 matches.
"We are not used to being in this position, but we don't look a lot at the table," Matic said.
"Last season, when we were champions, for the first 10 or 15 games we also did not look at the table - we just tried to take things game by game and collect as many points as possible.
"I think the table is not realistic now because I think Chelsea deserve more. We will try to recover points which we lost up to now."
