Branislav Ivanovic has revealed that he apologised to his team-mates following his “worst game” for Chelsea after their defeat by Swansea earlier this month.

The Serbian defender was at fault for both of the goals conceded at Stamford Bridge as Micheal Laudrup’s men ran out 2-0 winners in the first leg of their Capital One Cup semi-final.

Ivanovic admitted that he was bitterly disappointed with his display in that game but is focused on making amends when the Blues travel to the Liberty Stadium for the return leg on Wednesday night.

“The first match was a very difficult game for us and for me it was probably my worst game for Chelsea,” he told the London Evening Standard.

“I apologised to everyone afterwards in the dressing room. That is normal, to admit you made a mistake, but you have to be mentally strong and mentally ready to forget these things.

“I was very disappointed but the good thing about football is that you always have tomorrow. I would like to play against Swansea to put things right, to stay focused and get the team to Wembley.”
