Remy expects Blues recovery

London - Loic Remy insists Chelsea remain on course to make a clean sweep of all the major prizes despite their spluttering form over the festive period.

Jose Mourinho's side allowed second placed Manchester City to draw level on points with them at the top of the Premier League after a draw at Southampton and a 5-3 defeat at Tottenham.

A 3-0 victory over Watford last weekend secured their place in the FA Cup fourth round, but it took second-half substitutes Diego Costa and Willian to ignite a flat performance.

With critics suggesting Chelsea are beginning to lose momentum in their bid to win the Premier League, Champions League, FA Cup and League Cup, French striker Remy hit back ahead of the Blues' home fixture against managerless Newcastle on Saturday.

"The mood is really positive. We are still focused on all the targets. Every team will be in trouble at some time and I hope ours is behind us now with the last two games," Remy told Standard Sport.

"There is no problem inside the camp, the players are still happy at training. We have shown everyone that we can react after two bad results.

"Was our confidence badly affected by what happened at Tottenham? No. We are still top of the league."
