Reaction: Must Take Chances

An equaliser from Luis Suarez ensured that Liverpool left the Bridge with a point after Chelsea took the lead from a John Terry header in the first half. The match saw Chelsea dominate for large periods of the game, yet the Blues failed to make their possession count.

Robbie’s Reaction

Di Matteo conceded that we needed another goal to kill the game. “It was crucial for us to get the second goal to finish the game off. We are still playing well, still creating chances, we just need to be more clinical.”

However, he firmly believes that the team is still in contention to win the title. “We are in much better shape than previous seasons and we are still in the mix (to win)”

When asked about John Terry’s injury, he said, “We’ll have to wait til tomorrow to understand how bad John Terry’s injury is.” However, Robbie did say that Cole will be available for the match against West Brom. “I hope and expect Ashley Cole to be available for the next game”

Chelsea dominated the game for large periods. The Blues looked like scoring every time someone went on a run. Then how exactly did we manage to drop 2 points against Liverpool? The answer: we didn’t take our chances. Despite not creating a lot of chances, we created some good chances. Oscar missed a one-on-one early on in the match and Mata also skyed one towards the end of the first half. Assuming we took even one of those chances,we would have comfortably seen off Liverpool. There is nothing else I can fault about our performance. We looked good on the ball and solid at the back, and Liverpool almost had no answer to our creative play. But we didn’t score enough and thats what hurt us. With a tough run of fixtures coming up (we play City in the League 2 weeks from now and a tough trip to Turin awaits us in the Champions League), Chelsea must avoid being wasteful in front of goal. Liverpool aren’t the strongest of teams so they couldn’t quite punish us. Other teams might not be so generous.
