Ex Chelsea man Brian Laudrup is featured in The Guardian today speaking ahead of our game tomorrow night. Having played for both sides Laudrup has spoken of Chelsea strength and of our weakness in recent weeks and in my view has hit the nail on the head. He said:

"Chelsea are dangerous at crosses and set pieces where they have a lot of strength but otherwise they play too slow and too individually, If Chelsea continue this way then FC Copenhagen have a chance."

For me the tempo of the game we have been playing is a massive part of our problems. Chelsea are at their best moving the ball quickly, and getting the ball into our forwards as soon as possible.

For example, at the end of the last season and the beginning of this, Chelsea had Drogba, Anelka and Malouda up front interchanging positions and had fantastic movement that caused defences all sorts of problems. At the moment because we are playing too slow, the movement now seems non existent and their positions on the pitch have become stagnant.

Look at Fulham and Liverpool. As soon as both sides lost the ball, they were able to get players back behind the ball to face up to Chelsea. Chelsea never moved the ball quick enough to get in behind or attack them so were forced to play passes from side to side and very rarely had a killer ball. Luiz played one ball over the top to Torres and found himself in on goal (even though we all know what happened!).

Right now it needs to be back to basics for Chelsea. We need to get the pace back into our game to open these sides up. There is no point slowing the game down or being sucked into a slow game as this does us no favours.

As soon as we can get back to playing the way we should be, the better our performances will be and big wins would be just around the corner once more. However, some people need to wake up to themselves, have a look at their performances and put them right starting with tomorrow night!.

We've been playing too slow, too laboured and not like Chelsea for too long. Let's get some pace back into our game!
