Every game is getting more difficult. Every team respects us more and defends more, looks only for the counter-attack, tries to reduce the time of the game, and fights with their strengths to make everything difficult.
Our number one opponents are not Liverpool, Arsenal or Manchester United. It is ourselves at Chelsea.
When I scored the two goals I was very fit and now I'm coming back, so I can't promise to score two goals
We win as a team, lose as a team and celebrate as a team. It didn't matter who got him out on the pitch, we just wanted him out there.
No goals conceded is the most important thing for us. If we want to do the same thing as last year we have to do better than last year and concede fewer goals. I think we can do better than last season.
(Didier Drogba has taunted Chelsea's Premiership rivals, saying they are running scared of the West Londoners.) It must be frightening for our rivals when we are not playing well but still winning every game, ... When we play badly our rivals must think: 'What are Chelsea going to be like when they are playing well'?
If such events should occur (again), I would no longer take the risk to come and play for the national team.
Like all players, I want to be more than just my side's secret weapon. I want to show that I can make a contribution to the team over the game as a whole. That's what I'm working on and I've set myself a target for breaking into the first eleven. But if I don't, it will be because the coach feels the time isn't right and I will respect his decision, as I always do.
I've had one month's holiday and I'm fresh now.
I'm having a great night. I'm very hopeful that we will win the Premiership and I hope we do well against Wigan this weekend.
