Oriol Romeu has demanded more from his team-mates, telling them that they needed to ‘fight’ to get out of this current slump, and admitted that confidence was at an all time low.
Chelsea have now gone 3 consecutive games without scoring, and just played out their second consecutive 0-0 stalemate at Stamford Bridge.
Midfielder Romeu, who made only his third league start of the season last night, told Chelsea TV: “We have to keep going forward, look at the positive things and win the games and fight, fight, in each game.
“When we get the confidence, the goals will go in. I’m sure about that.
“We had two clean sheets after a long time without that happening.
“So, that’s a positive thing and the only thing is that, if we score, we can win.
“We are defending well and now we have to think of attack and scoring more goals, for sure.”
Romeu was drafted in for John Obi Mikel last night, the former Barcelona youngster adding more quality in possession but without much penetration.
The 21-year-old admitted they needed to work on their tactics, adding: “The counter-attack is a good point to kill the opponents and I think we can do it a bit quicker, and if we can do it, we can get chances a little bit better.
“So, we will try to improve that point and obviously we have a few more points to get better.”
We all know that Chelsea are lacking that cutting edge, and have no confidence going forward to match. Rafa is not the most attacking manager and never will be, but he will have to figure out how to get Chelsea scoring and winning soon or he could set a new Chelsea record.
