A crushing 4-0 defeat away at Wolves last weekend put a very sour end to a positive week for the Seasiders following an emphatic 3-0 win over Tottenham Hotspur previously.
The players returned to training today in preparation for Monday’s clash with Holloway hoping his side experience a better day at the office.
“I’m looking forward to a different day in the office because that wasn’t nice (at Wolves),” Holloway exclaimed. “I’m very fortunate as a manager that I haven’t had to stomach too many of those.
“But there’s a lot of football left in this season yet and I believe we can beat almost any of the teams on our day, but we have to produce a better performance than we did on Saturday.
“I think their closing, their shape, everything about them was better so you’ve got to pick yourself up, dust yourself down and get on with it. We’ve got 10 games left and we need as many points as we can muster.”
Blackpool will have to make do without striker DJ Campbell when they face the Blues on Monday following his sending off against Wolves last Saturday. The sides last met in the Premier League back in September at Stamford Bridge where Chelsea were resounding 4-0 winners thanks to goals from Didier Drogba, Flourent Malouda and Solamon Kalou.
