Chelsea have found a series of negative results lately, even they lost at home in the last two games, including against Southampton last weekend. This situation makes defender Cesar Azpilicuetta look disappointed, he also hopes that the opposing team will be afraid of Stamford Bridge again.
As is known, in the Boxing Day match yesterday, Chelsea faced with Southampton. Unfortunately, despite playing at home, the Blues had to bow at the end of the fight after a landslide defeat of 0-2 to the Saints. The visitors scored two goals each Michael Obafemi and Nathan Redmond.
With these results, Chelsea carve a bad record at home, they lost three times in five home games in all competitions. Related to this negative incision, defender Cesar Azpilicuetta then considered it a serious problem. Despite the fact that the opposing team is always trying to close their defense meetings, Chelsea certainly must still be able to find the right solution.
“The fact is we can’t win and can’t even score in these two home games, and this is a big problem if we want to maintain consistency and stay where we want to be,”
“Supporters want us to achieve good results but we cannot. It is true that at home we face teams that sometimes hold more tightly than when they played at home and we could get more space. “However, we must be able to find a solution,” said Azpilicueta as quoted by Goal International.
Furthermore, the Spanish national team player hopes that Chelsea can look fierce again when playing at home, so that Stamford Bridge becomes a place which is feared by the opposing teams.
“It is up to us to always play consistently, the level of playing at home or away, against any team. We know every game in the Premier League is very hard. When other teams see us losing points at home then they come with more confidence. We must restore this respect at home, “he said.
New Chelsea will return to play at Stamford Bridge in the upcoming FA Cup 5 January 2020 against Nottingham Forest.
