Chelsea captain, Cesar Azpilicueta, has said there’s a disappointment after their 2-2 draw with Wolves.
With incoming owner Todd Boehly in the stands, Chelsea blew a 2-0 lead to draw with Conor Coady scoring the equaliser on 97 minutes.
Azpilicueta said: “Very disappointing because we were leading 2-0 so to drop two points in this way is very disappointing. Of course the taste of the game is bad. We are conceding too many goals in the last couple of games which is putting us in a difficult position in the race for the Champions League. Other teams are winning and we are not getting as many points as we should. We have to get up together and have a good last few weeks. It is in our hands and we have an FA Cup final to play.
“The pressure is always there. You have to accept it. Every point is important. Now we have to start better. We used to be a solid team, now we are conceding a lot of goals. That has put ourselves in a difficult position.”
On the new ownership, he continued: “The team has been completely out of the process. Our focus has been on the pitch. Of course we are disappointed not to give the first win for him. It is out of our hands so not worth wasting energy on that. Of course we have missed some fans in the stadium and there have been a couple of things but the work on the pitch cannot be excused. Our job is to train the best we can and get the results so that is why we’re disappointed.
“We need to do the basics better. In the last couple of games we have conceded so many goals. The two boxes are the key areas. We scored two then conceded two at home. That is hard. Sometimes you need a 1-0 win. We have not been as sharp or as fluid as we’ve been before but we scored to go 2-0 and that should have been enough.”
