Chelsea’s disastrous run of results since Ray Wilkins left has no sign of ending as they lost to Marseille last night. Chelsea had already topped the Group but they needed a confidence booster ahead of three difficult Premier League games coming up.
Ancelotti agreed the team were still not at their best. “Not 100 per cent, but some things were good. The first half was good,” he said after the game.
“Defensively we did well, I think. We lost the possibility to counter-attack. We could have had a penalty in the first half.
“Defensively there was tactical discipline and I asked for this from my players. We didn’t have a lot of opportunities to shoot and score, we need to be more clear with the final ball.”
Something has to change!
