Asmir Begovic: This is why we have to beat Maccabi Tel Aviv


Chelsea goalkeeper Asmir Begovic says this week's Champions League game against Maccabi Tel Aviv is a must win game for the Blues.

Disappointing results in the Premier League saw Chelsea drop to 17th in the table as they kick-off their Champions League campaign on Wednesday night.

And the Bosnian, who took over from injured Thibaut Courtois away at Everton, is convinced that it's not too late to bounce back.

"It's a tough result [defeat against Everton] again,' the goalkeeper told the club's official website.

"Things are obviously not going our way at the moment, so it was a difficult day. We knew it was going to be a tough test – coming to Goodison is never an easy task. They played very well in stretches, tested us and scored goals at the right times and we didn't, so that obviously makes a big difference.

"We have no time to feel sorry for ourselves. We have to pick ourselves up and look forward to our game on Wednesday. We have character and we have lots of different challenges.

"We know we still have quality as a team and we need to get a good performance and a good result against a tough Maccabi team – hopefully that can give us a boost to really kick on.

"We know we can go on a run and we know we have the capabilities. This team has shown in the past it can do that so we need to start picking up results, then hopefully climb up and start putting pressure on the rest of the teams."
