Chelsea striker Didier Drogba insists the club's slump in form has created a bad mood in and around Stamford Bridge.
The Blues started the campaign in irresistible fashion, but injuries led to a lack of goals and a dramatic slump in form.
Carlo Ancelotti's side had been improving of late, however, a toothless display against Liverpool on Sunday has once again hit their fading title ambitions.
Drogba is so used to winning and scoring goals for fun that he admits the club had not been a good place to be around of late as everyone is in a bad mood.
Chelsea remain ten points adrift of Manchester United following their Reds loss and Drogba believes that Ancelotti has also been affected by their disappointing results.
"Our league position is similar to what it was last season," explained Drogba.
"But absences, and the fact that we've not been scoring as many goals, has made for a bad mood around the place.
"I'm finding our bad spell hard to live with, as do the rest of the squad.
"We are suffering, given that Chelsea are not accustomed to losing matches.
"Carlo Ancelotti has been unhappy in recent weeks."
