Branislav Ivanovic has warned Chelsea that things will get tougher for them when they face the likes of Tottenham and Manchester United after the international break.

The European champions refused to be knocked off course by the John Terry and Ashley Cole furore as they came roaring back to crush Norwich 4-1 at Stamford Bridge yesterday.

Defender Ivanovic bagged his third goal of the season as the Blues remained top of the Premier League table.

But the 28-year-old has warned Roberto Di Matteo’s side that they can’t afford to get complacent as they look to maintain their good form after the international break.

“At the moment, a lot of things are okay,” said Ivanovic.

“But we still have to work hard and it’s going to be very, very tough.

“We expect, after the international break, a very hard period of games and we have to be ready for that.”
