|I TRUST THE PLAYERS TO BOUNCE BACK – ANDRE|
Andre Villas-Boas is confident the players will show the same determination to bounce back from Sunday’s loss against West Ham as they did after the disappointment of the North London derby – our only other defeat this term.
The team reeled off five wins and a draw in the six matches that followed that agonising reverse at the Emirates, a run halted by the Hammers at the Lane.
Once again, the players have departed on international duty and will return to action in the Barclays Premier League at Villa on Sunday 20 October.
That’s the start of another busy run with seven matches in 21 days in all competitions before another international break after Newcastle’s visit to N17 on November 10, this time for the World Cup play-offs.
“After the break after the defeat against Arsenal we were able to bounce back with a good run of games that we won,” said Andre.
“I trust the team with the team spirit we have to do exactly the same.
“We can’t do anything (now), the focus of the players’ minds will be away and perhaps that’s a good thing.
“When we come back, we’ll try to regroup the players to get a good result at Villa.”
