Mateo Kovacic opens up about beating Leicester City yesterday; We handled them very well.
Kovacic has spoken about beating Leicester City and also what it feels like getting on the winning streak and actually scoring the sealing goal.
Here is what he said;
“Of course it’s nice to score and I’m really happy to help the team but for me, the most important thing is getting the three points,’ the Croatia midfielder explained post-match.
“We stood up to the physical challenge from Leicester and I think over the past week, we’ve shown a lot of character to record three important wins.
“The challenge now is to make sure we put in performances like this on a consistent basis and continue to move up the table.
“We knew we needed to step up and like Chelsea, we always do. We know we still have a lot of work to do because we are not in a good position for this club, but it’s a lot more positive to know that we are now winning points and performing a lot better.
Kovacic also said: “I think in the first half we were a little bit too deep and that allowed Leicester to come forward, and to be fair to them they played a good game.
“We also didn’t take our chances and that allows them the opportunity to get back into the game, which they did with their goal.
“Thankfully, in the second half, we were a bit more ruthless and got our goals and, importantly, got the win.”
