Matic cannot explain Chelsea's inconsistency.

Chelsea midfielder Nemanja Matic has said that he cannot explain why consistency has not come their way this season.

The champions have been in terrible form this season and are currently placed 16th on the Premier League table.

‘I cannot explain why consistency has been so difficult to achieve,’ said Matic, Chelsea's official website reports.

‘I don’t know what happened to us [against Leicester]. In the game against Porto, a very good team, we played very well, we scored two goals and created chances, but we were like another team on the pitch against Leicester.

‘We have to say congratulations to them, they fought for every ball, and they were very good. They had confidence and it is easier to play when you are first in the table and you are at home. We didn’t start badly, we controlled the ball, but after the second goal it was very difficult for us to recover and we didn’t use the chances we had.

‘It is one more game that was not good for us. We are sad because of the defeat but we have to keep going, to try to win some games and to recover from this situation which is not easy for us. We have to try to be better than we were.’
