I was reading a comment featured in the media from Cesar "Dave" Azpilicueta after he has stated that he believes our second half performance at Old Trafford could be the catalyst for our season and thought to myself, "It's all well and good saying it, you now need to get out there and do it again!".
“I think the United game was really important for us.
After what happened in the first half the reaction of team was very good. We were very strong mentally. We could've won the game and we showed that when we are at our best level we can beat any team.
It was a very difficult situation and to respond like we did was very important for the confidence of the team. We hope to have this confidence for the next game and the rest of the season.”(Source)
We have seen this before from "Rafa's Chelsea" though haven't we. Smacking Villa 8-0 at home one week and then defeat to QPR at home a little over a week later!
Don't get me wrong, I was literally blown away by our second half performance on Sunday as I never expected it at all and thought we would get battered by United.
Chelsea showed last weekend their character and determination as a group of players to put things right and it's something we hadn't seen for the most part since Rafa took over. Like I said, it's all well and good doing it at Old Trafford but I want to see the same levels of performance tonight against Steaua.
This is a dangerous game tonight and it's foolish to ignore the threat that Steaua will pose on the counter attack but, in saying that, Steaua will be well aware of just how dangerous Chelsea can be.
On paper, this is a tie Chelsea should get through without problems. We saw after the first leg just how dire Chelsea could be of late as we have become used to these Jekyll and Hyde performances from the team.
Chelsea need another Old Trafford second half performance tonight to have a chance of going through and anything less could be costly. It's one thing talking about it, the players need to get out there tonight and do it!
