Chelsea manager Mauricio Pochettino has charged fans of the club to trust the process after a dismal start to the new season.
The Blues have won just three of their opening 10 league fixtures and are 11th in the Premier League table.
Their latest setback was a 2-0 home defeat to west London neighbours Brentford at the weekend.
The inconsistent results of the west Londoners have now increased the pressure on Pochettino, who remains upbeat about his squad stemming the tide.
“I know it is difficult to keep your feelings but it is normal,” said Pochettino ahead of Chelsea’s Carabao Cup clash with Blackburn Rovers on Wednesday night.
“The fans want to win and sometimes are frustrated when we don’t win. The message is to believe and trust in us and in the end it is about the process.”
