Didier Drogba is featured in an interview here speaking once again of Chelsea's form and the need to win consecutive games first before thinking of a push for the Premier League title.

He said:
Instead of thinking about winning the title, we should think about winning two consecutive games. Then we'll see. It's not a joke, it's true. We have to think about winning two consecutive games. That's being realistic and it shows how badly we've been doing for the last month and a half. It's something that has to change and we're not far from that.

Now everybody is coming back from injuries it is going to help us. When you don't win games, yeah, you lose confidence. The only way to get back your confidence and be able to say we can still win the league would be to win two or three consecutive games.

We've had a lot of injured players and the team has changed from last year. We lost five great players in Michael Ballack, Juliano Belletti, Deco, Ricardo Carvalho and Joe Cole. We replaced them with young players like Jeffrey Bruma, Gael Kakuta, Josh McEachran and Patrick van Aanholt. They are good players but need time to adapt.

What happened is just that the season is very long. I said during that time that maybe some difficult moments would come, so we'd have to be sure that these moments wouldn't be long. Unfortunately, it's longer than what we thought it would be.

I've had malaria and surgery before the beginning of the season for my hernia to make sure I'll be okay for the next few years. I won't say I'm happy because we're having a difficult moment, but when you look at the amount of games I've played and the number of goals and assists I've had, I know it's not the best, but it's not bad.

I can continue to improve that. I'm not worried about my performance. What is really important for me is for the team to go back to the winning way. If we win the league and I score only ten goals, for me it's fine."

It was really bad, so bad that it lasted two months, It should be something that could be solved in a few weeks. At first the tests didn't show that it was malaria. The doctor thought it was 'flu, so that's why we lost time.

While we thought it was 'flu I was playing, because for me I can handle 'flu. I lost fitness, but I was working hard and trying to help the team. For me to be playing now, it's already a good start because it was a difficult moment for me to have malaria. Very difficult.

(Of Ray Wilkins and his departure from the club)
"He was part of the team for a bit more than two years. But even when he was there we lost some games, Last year we had a bad moment as well when he was there. I think it's not about Ray leaving the club. It's about the players not being able to play at their best, including me. For sure we'll win a lot of games and lose some games, but it's not an individual that would make a big difference like this in our results. I think it's collective, the team.
What do you think of what he is saying?. I agree with him, we need to take each game as it comes as I said on here before that the next seven games (including Blackburn) would define our season. Bolton away on a Monday night is no easy game but the way we played against Blackburn showed me that we are getting back on the road to playing our football again.

He also makes a good point about the players who left and who they have been replaced with. It will take time for any youngster to come into the side to be able to cope with step up so soon especially with all the problems we have had.

Finally, he makes a good point about Wilkins. He is right, he was there during the bad moments and the good. However, I do think as I also said on here that Chelsea and Carlo miss that link man between him and the players.
