Michael Essien has spoken about Chelsea's recent recovery from the defeat to Inter Milan in the Champions League and has revealed that the side is conditioned to get over defeats quickly.

Essien said on his blog at :

"As players and as a club we work hard to win every game and we tend to win most of them but every so often we lose games like the Inter one and it hurts so much. I was on the bench watching the guys work hard to defeat Inter till Eto'o scored. At that moment I could feel the pain and disappointment in the stadium. I could see how hard the players were pushing to try and save the game and as the minutes ticked by I started to get that sinking feeling.

I watched the highlights of the game on TV the next day and can still remember a little boy crying his eyes out and being consoled by his mum because we had been knocked out again. It's such an awful feeling and I am sure most Chelsea fans felt the same after the game. As players we are taught and conditioned to overcome such disappointments quickly. It's not because we don't care but more importantly we have to move on quickly so it doesn't affect our next performance. As a player you have to rise above defeat so you are mentally prepared for the next game.

Whatever you do stick with Chelsea because the next win is always round the corner after a defeat. We have the 'bouncebackability' mentality and as you saw after the Inter game we won against Portsmouth and Aston Villa convincingly and beat Manchester United.

To the little boy who was crying his heart out after the Inter game, I hope you are feeling better now. I am proud of you for showing such true emotions for your team. I hope we win something for you this season to keep the tears away."
