Azpilicueta: 'Players are getting confidence back'

If the overwhelming theme of recent player interviews is a true indication of the actual mood in the camp — i.e. they're not just telling us what we want to hear, what they think we want to hear, or what they've been told we want to hear — then it would appear that real confidence is slowly coming back into the Chelsea camp.  The clownshow of the early season sapped it all away, but now it's slowly refilling.

"Obviously we want to carry on, we are in a position where we've come from two wins in a row, two games in which we've played really well and players are getting confidence back. We'll take it step by step. Now we have a tough game against Tottenham away on Sunday and we want to keep going."

"We were playing well in the last few games (prior to Norwich) but we didn't get the results we deserved. Obviously for confidence it's hard but you have to face the reality, keep working, keep trying and I think now the results are coming for us."

We might still have a shot at the title if we win every match from here on in, so what are we waiting for?  (Or do we need to win all just to make the top four?)

Azpilicueta, as usual, is ready to help however, wherever, whenever he's needed.

"I think at this stage last season I hadn't played so many games on the right but my goal and my target is always the same - to help the team. I feel comfortable in both positions so I'm ready for the manager when he wants me to play."

Presumably, Dave will be back on the left, with Ivanović, who got the day off against Maccabi, starting on the right flank against Spurs this weekend.  They'll have their work cut out for them, against Spurs' collection of better-than-average wide men.
