Former Chelsea youngster Marko Marin believes the injuries he suffered since he joined the Blues in 2012 from Werder Bremen led to the collapse of his career.

The Olympiacos winger told Bild why he failed to impress during the spell at Stamford Bridge: “That’s easy to explain. At Chelsea I had a strong pre-season, but then I was injured shortly before the season and was out for four months.”

“During the season I came to a total of 16 games. But I wanted more, I did not want to wait for my chance. Then Sevilla came up to me and I went on loan.”

Marin spent last season on loan at Turkish side Trabzonspor and joined Greek giants Olympiacos on a permanent move this summer.

Chelsea defender David Luiz believes ‘Liverpool controlled the game in the first half with a lot of possession’ in the last Premier League game at Stamford Bridge, where “Geezer” made his debut again with the Blues. 

“Their second goal was amazing – the Brazil international told Chelsea TV - the first one was a quick free-kick and we must pay attention to this sort of thing because they started better than us”.

“The second half we controlled the game, almost scored a second goal to draw and of course it is not a good night for us but we’ll keep fighting for the next games.”

Speaking about Liverpool’s first goal, David Luiz added: “Normally you have a line to defend the free-kick but they played short and they played quickly, and we didn’t organise the line quickly so that is why they had two or three free players at the back and they scored a goal”.

“This is the Premier League. When you make a mistake and don’t pay attention, particularly from the free-kick, you pay.”

West Ham manager Slaven Bilic admitted his side must improve to avoid a mediocre season this year and believes Chelsea’s disappointing campaign last season ‘was because of being in a comfort zone’.

“Chelsea lost the title in the same way last year – he said – Manchester City lost it last year, and didn’t achieve. It was because of being in a comfort zone”.

“No team can play in the Premier League like that! We are not the kind of team that get away with it because of the quality they can put on the pitch. We are not a team, 100 per cent”.

The Croatian manager believes the Hammers have to learn Chelsea’s lesson if they want to climb up the table in the next few weeks.

West Ham were defeated 4-2 by West Bromwich Albion today and have only 3 points in 5 games so far.
