Chelsea ‘s 0-1 defeat to Everton on Sunday (1/5/2022) was a very hard slap for the Blues squad. Chelsea midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek admitted the poor result was his own fault for not playing at the level he should have.
Chelsea does seem to lose consistency lately. Of their last five matches in all competitions, Chelsea have only won two, one of them in the FA Cup. That is, the performance of the Blues in the Premier League began to be questioned.
Chelsea began to shake after being knocked out of the Champions League in the semifinals. After that, they have only won two of their last five matches in the Premier League.
Chelsea ‘s game did not look solid on the gridiron. Thomas Tuchel is often seen screaming on the sidelines with a frustrated expression. What’s up with the Blues?
Not Chelsea Standard
The difficulties experienced by Chelsea were expressed by their midfielder, Ruben Loftus-Cheek. He admitted in the last few games, Chelsea seemed to have lost some basic things in their game.
“It’s all up to us as individuals to quickly adjust and improve as a team,” said Loftus-Cheek.
“We have to make sure every player is ready for the game. That is the basis in football. Without those basics, you will struggle like we did in the last four games.”
This is by no means Chelsea standards. Our concentration level is not good enough,” continued the Chelsea midfielder.
Ruben Loftus-Cheek also revealed how disappointed the Chelsea squad was because of the performance they showed in the last few games.
According to him, Chelsea must immediately overcome the mistakes they made themselves in order to return the performance to the required standard.
“We made mistakes in the last few games and we couldn’t keep a clean sheet due to a number of individual mistakes,” Loftus-Cheek said.
“That’s football. If you keep making mistakes, over time you will find it difficult to get out of the cycle,” continued the Chelsea midfielder.
