Chelsea's January signing, Gary Cahill, has conceded it has been difficult for him during his early days at Stamford Bridge.
The England international left Bolton for manager Andre Villas-Boas' side and was expected to bolster the club's backline.
Cahill had been playing second fiddle to David Luiz and John Terry, but an injury to the latter has given him a chance.
The 26-year-old started Saturday's 3-0 win over former club Bolton and he hopes fans were more enthused by their performance.
Cahill accepts things have not gone to plan so far for him, although he believes with more time things will begin to gel.
"I'm not going to lie and say it's been fantastically easy," he told Chelsea TV.
"We've had some sticky results of late and I have been plonked straight in the middle of it all. It has been difficult.
"Moving mid-season to a new club would be hard anyway, what with having to move house and everything that comes with it, but you just get on with it and put in some consistent performances.
"There is an expectation level from the fans and rightly so. They expect us to win games and come and watch football.
"There is nothing wrong with that and as players we have to try and produce that. They will be a lot happier with that performance against Bolton.
"My partnership with Luiz and the whole back four is new. But the more we work together on the training ground, the better the relationships will be."
