He told The Mirror: “Losing at Liverpool was certainly the worst moment of the season for the team, and one of the hardest for me personally.
“The blow was only softened when Manchester United lost at Arsenal on the same weekend.
“There was a lot of criticism around that time, some of which had nothing to do with football, but I don’t think I was victimised – I have always tried to do my best for the team.
“In the last few months, things have changed for the better and I feel I’m playing better. I have another three years to run on my contract at Chelsea and I want to see them through.”
