Chelsea defender Gary Cahill claims the players were left distraught after the 2-1 defeat to West Ham United yesterday.
Cahill, 29, scored the equaliser but was part of a back-line that failed abjectly as the Blues suffered another defeat in what has been their worst start to a season in a generation.
Speaking to the press afterwards, the England international said this:
“The mood in the dressing room is not great – like you’d imagine when you lose games.
“Last season we weren’t used to it. The lads are devastated.
“You’re left scratching your head sometimes. In the first half a Cesc Fabregas goal could have been given and we had a goal that was nearly over the line. That sums up the way we’re going.
“And then we’ve got the sending-off. Originally we played on – we thought the referee had played on. Maybe the assistant called it back, I’m not sure sure what’s happened there.
“We’ve not had the rub of the green, but we’re not feeling sorry for ourselves. We have to work hard to turn this round.
“Not many words are being said at the moment. I’m sure we’ll reflect in next day or so. We worked really hard with 10 men and had the majority of the play in the second half. It’s a summary of our season at the minute.”
