Potter: Mistakes cost us agaisnt Fulham

0 26

Graham Potter believes they lost to London opponent Fulham due to mistake as Chelsea’s continue to suffer defeat in the League.

Chelsea manager Graham Potter believes that the Blues suffered another defeat in the Premier League due to the mistake made in the game.

However, a high challenge from debutant Joao Felix resulted in him being sent off by the referee and, despite the Blues continuing to threaten with 10 men in the final 30 minutes, the home side took advantage when neither Kepa Arrizabalaga nor Trevoh Chalobah managed to deal with a cross from deep, taking the lead and holding it until the end.

“It’s really frustrating, it’s incredibly challenging,’ said Potter after the game. ‘We’re disappointed to lose tonight, I thought it was a relatively even game in the first half, we had a couple of good chances. I think with the basics we can do a little better – in terms of our defending, in terms of our football actions.

“But at the same time we get back into the game and then the red card feels like where we’re at, at the moment, in terms of the things that can happen to us. Obviously we’d lost Denis just beforehand as well and just adjusted with Jorgi, and then Joao, who was having a fantastic impact on the game, you could see his quality, to lose him and for three matches is just really disappointing.

“Probably rather than anything special from the opponent it was our own actions where we could do better and that’s what we have to improve.

“I never like to speak about individuals when we lose. Their second goal itself was a frustrating one from our point of view. I don’t think they were putting us under too much pressure even though they had an extra man. So it felt like a bit of a soft goal to concede and that’s something we have to do better with.”
