“We deserved more” – Chelsea captain reflects on Old Trafford frustrations

Chelsea had a disastrous start to their new Premier League season on Sunday afternoon, where they were beaten 4-0 by Manchester United at Old Trafford.

The Blues were full of mistakes and looked a real shambles defensively, with Kurt Zouma giving away a penalty when his side were on top.

Chelsea controlled the match for long periods of time, but were undone by United taking their chances off the back un-forced Chelsea mistakes.

Many Blues fans would have left the game feeling frustrated, and certainly feeling they deserved much more from this match.

Captain Cesar Azpilicueta has been speaking about his own frustrations after the defeat, and believes his team deserved more.

Talking to the Chelsea FC website, he said:

“We’re obviously very disappointed with the result because we controlled the game, especially in the first half, and created a lot of chances but we couldn’t score.

“It’s a tough scoreline to take but we weren’t clinical in the boxes and after we conceded two goals in two minutes, things were more difficult for us.

“From that point, we were more open and gave them more spaces, they got more confidence and at the end we got a tough result.

“We deserved more but it is what it is and we have to move on.”

Chelsea will be keen to forget this one and hopefully learn from the many mistakes made during the match.

They will take some reassurances and positives from the fact that they hit the post twice, and if not for some great goalkeeping they could have easily found themselves with at least four goals themselves.
