Chelsea's Eidur Gudjohnsen has warned they will bounce back from their defeat to Man Utd.Chelsea ace Eidur Gudjohnsen has warned their rivals they will not be affected by their defeat to Manchester United.
The Blues saw their 40-game unbeaten run come to an end following Sunday's 1-0 reverse at Old Trafford.
The defeat was Chelsea's second in succession, but Gudjohnsen believes the team are capable of stringing together a long unbeaten record.
"Don't be surprised if we go on another 40-game unbeaten run again," said Gudjohnsen. "We have got lots of characters in the side and there is nothing to worry about.
"I don't think we have a crisis. We just have to keep going, playing as we are. The way we played in the defeat against Real Betis last week we didn't deserve anything. I don't want to compare that game with United."
The Icelandic international was disappointed to lose against United, but he feels they have the character get back on track.
Gudjohnsen claims the squad are determined not to get into the losing habit and insisted there was no problem with their passion for the game.
"It is disappointing to lose and it is not something we want to get used to but I'm sure we will put it straight," added Gudjohnsen.
"There is no questioning our desire or commitment. I don't think the game proved our critics right. We can be positive."
