Chelsea boss Mauricio Pochettino has revealed who to blame for Chelsea’s disappointing defeat to Brentford at Stamford Bridge.
The Blues dominated the opening 45 minutes of today’s encounter. Chance after chance was created, the closest of which saw Noni Madueke strike the crossbar with an excellent effort.
However, after the half-time interval, the Blues were made to pay for failure to convert our chances as Brentford scored twice in the second-half.
“The analysis is clear because in the first half we should score and we didn’t score,” Pochettino said.
“That’s easy. When you dominate and create chances, don’t concede chances, and the opponent does cross the halfway line, you should score.
“If you don’t score, you need blame yourself. So we blame ourselves because we were not nasty and clinical in front of the goal. Sometimes you need some luck too and if that happens, it changes the game in the second half.
“We kept the belief even though we didn’t score but in the second half we can’t concede this type of goal. It is our mistake and that is why we lose the game.”
