Shock admission: Chelsea stars play better when they’re scared, says Ivanovic

first_imgChelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic has admitted they play better when they’re scared of defeat.The reigning Premier League champions have been poor all season, leaving themselves in 13th position, but have managed to defeat Arsenal twice.And the Blues’ Serbian star reckons the reason is because they feared being defeated and have been too relaxed against opponents who you would traditionally expect them to beat.Ivanovic said: “We are trying to be motivated for every game but this season we’ve played better when we’re afraid and when we scared to lose the game. With this pressure we are playing better games.“Every time we are relaxed and think we are going to win easily we have problems.“Today was great but I hope this is just a small step to changing our season.”last_img
