“It’s early December and there’s a long way to go. But we are progressing,” he told Sky Sports.
“Whether it’s this season we get to the heights we want, I don’t know. But we are moving in the right direction.
“When you bring in new players, have young players, you’re trying to integrate them. I’m really pleased. It’s work on the training ground and staff behind the scenes.
“At our level, at Chelsea, people will always question us. Our job is to not get caught up in the chat.
“We have to keep our feet on the ground. There’s a long, long way to go. At the minute we’re in a patch.”
Chelsea will hope to continue their outstanding performance when the host Krasnodar in the last group match of the UEFA Champions League on Tuesday.
