"The players come in happier, but now we have to forget about the last game and think about Chelsea - another hard game for us".
This does not bode well for a game against Maurizio Sarri's free-flowing outfit, which has been outscored by only Manchester City so far this league campaign.
BATE's 2-0 home defeat of Vidi earlier in the day ensured Chelsea could not be caught in top spot, with Sarri making 10 changes from a crushing 3-1 loss at Tottenham that ended their unbeaten start to the Premier League season last time out.
Alvaro Morata has five Premier League goals in the Premier League's latest edition of 2018-19 two fewer than Eden Hazard. Of course every player wants to play more. "I'm very happy with this".
However, the upcoming festive period could offer some hope of Premier League action, with Chelsea set to play 10 fixtures, spanning three competitions, across 30 days there's a possibility of Sarri rotating his squad.
Morata has been less effective as the leading striker, hence, it is time to drop him and give Giroud the opportunity he so much deserves. "He's very able to do this, but I want to see him in a match when he has to play in a defensive phase". Sarri suggested this week N'Golo Kante is not the right sort of midfielder to play in front of his defence - Fabregas may be.

He said the move was an effort by the Indian government to please the Sikh community ahead of next year's general elections. Thousands of Sikh devotees from India visit Pakistan every year to celebrate the birth anniversary of Guru Nanak.
But Maurizio Sarri confirmed he picked up a knock during the match and was therefore an absentee at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.
However, new boss Claudio Ranieri will return to his former club after replacing Slavisa Jokanovic last month and the Italian got off to the ideal start after beating Southampton 3-2 last weekend.
"It's always special (returning to Chelsea), " added Ranieri.
This was really very good. "I ask him during training 'shoot at goal, shoot at goal" but he passes and he passes.
"Until he understands, it's important he keeps scoring goals".
