Chelsea manager Antonio Conte was full of praise for his players after they fought until the very end to beat Leicester City in the League Cup.
The Blues endured a nightmare start to the game but bounced back and kept their cool to beat 10-man Leicester and reach the fourth round of the competition.
The Italian also confirmed that midfielder Cesc Fabregas could be in the starting line-up when Chelsea face Arsenal this Saturday.
"It was a typical English game," Conte explained.
"It's incredible that after 30 minutes you are 2-0 down and then have a great reaction to score four goals and to go in the next round.
"If you ask me if I'm happy with the goals we conceded, I am not happy, but I saw a great reaction from my players and my team.
"This is very important because they showed a great heart and a will to win and go in the next round. It wasn't easy at 2-0 and after a defeat in the last game in the league.
"We know that we can improve, I repeat this. The only way I know is to continue to work very hard and to improve on different aspects. I am sure we can improve and I will try with all my strength to do this.
"I am pleased for Cesc [Fabregas].
"He played a good game and he showed me in this period great attitude and commitment during the training sessions and when I call him during the game to come on. I'm satisfied when I see this behaviour.
"This is the right way. I want my players to create good competition in the team and game by game give me the opportunity to choose the best line-up.
"All the players in my squad have the possibility to play against Arsenal [even Cesc].
"There are three days before the game and they have the opportunity to show me during the training sessions, to have a good shape, and convince me to put them in the line-up.
"I want to win. My choice is done to win. I don't care what the surname is. It's important when I call someone to play to show me my choice is not wrong."
