Chelsea midfielder Pedro Rodriguez feels the club may be in crisis if they fail to recover from their recent run of bad results.
The Blues were eliminated from the FA Cup on Monday night after a 2-0 loss on their patch to rivals United, which didn’t go down well with a section of fans in the club.
Swedish side Malmo is next on the line in the second leg of their Europa League round-of-32 tie on Thursday, before Sunday’s Carabao Cup final against Manchester City.
And former Barca winger Pedro admits the club needs to return to winning ways.
“There is an important game in the Europa League for us, and after the final against City,” Pedro told Chelsea’s official website.
“The most important thing now is to stay calm, train really hard and recover our best football and our best feeling, because if not we are in trouble.

“It was a very bad day for us, for all the team (against United). It’s a difficult situation. In the first half we played very well, we created chances to score one goal, but they had two situations and scored two goals.
“The most important thing was to do a good job creating chances with the ball in the second half, but we couldn’t do it and for this reason, it was so difficult for us to come back.”
