Mauricio Pochettino has called on Chelsea fans to “believe” in the process after a poor start to the season.
Chelsea have won five of their opening 12 games across all competitions.
“They need to be with us. I know it’s difficult to keep your feelings and it’s normal,” Pochettino said.
“The fans want to win and are frustrated and they show emotion but the message is to believe and to show trust in us, and for sure it’s about the process of trusting and believing.”
Chelsea face Blackburn Rovers in the EFL Cup with both sides mid-table in their respective divisions and a similar win record.
The Blues are 11th in the Premier League while Blackburn are 12th in the Championship after six wins from their 14 games.
