EPL: Azpilicueta Laments Over Heavy Defeat Against Bournemouth
The morning after a devastating defeat is better imagined than experienced. So it is not surprising to see Chelsea players being downcast following Wednesday’s 4-0 bashing by AFC Bournemouth.
It is the worst defeat for the Blues in 17 years and for Cesar Azpilicueta, such display and result is not acceptable for a team like Chelsea.
‘Everything went wrong from the first minute of the second half,’ he said.
‘We conceded an early goal, and then when we were closer to equalising we conceded a second. After that, we didn’t have the reaction we should have. Conceding four goals is unacceptable, and we are very angry with that.
‘Afterwards we spoke as men between the manager and the players. It was a very tough result after two wins in the cup. We expected another result tonight. To lose 4-0 as Chelsea players is unacceptable.
‘We spoke and in three days’ time we have another game. We have to be more consistent because 10 days ago we lost against Arsenal, we had a really bad game there, then we played two good games in the cup. To drop back again is really frustrating. We are very angry. It is unacceptable for Chelsea and we have to find the solutions.’
The margin of the defeat has moved Chelsea out of the top four for the first time this season, with Arsenal now ahead of their London neigbours on goals scored.
