Chelsea captain, Cesar Azpilicueta, has explained why his side were defeated 1-0 by Leicester City on Saturday in the Premier league.
A goal from Jamie Vardy ensured Leicester City defeated Maurizio Sarri’s side at Stamford Bridge.
Azpilicueta said Leicester won against the Blues because the visitors were efficient and held their lead after scoring until the end of the match.
“It’s really disappointing, but we don’t have another option, this game is finished; we have to analyze and improve the mistakes we made, to carry on the things we did well,” Azpilicueta told Chelsea TV.
“And we have two away games before the turn of the year and hopefully we can get the points, because we need them.
“We are really disappointed with the result; it’s true we had chances to score a goal and to win the game.
“But the truth is they were efficient, and they held their lead after scoring until the end.”
“We finished the first half very well, we were in control of the game, we had chances, we were dangerous,” the Spaniard added.
“But then we conceded five or six minutes into the second half, and they were more comfortable at 1-0.
“Their plan was to contain, and obviously we were trying to find the solution, but we were not even able to score for 1-1, and then we were in trouble.”
Azpilicueta will hope to lead Chelsea to victory when they tackle Watford on Wednesday in the Premier League fixture.
