The team’s head coach Jesse Marsch seemed very disappointed after the loss. In the post-match conference, Marsch said:
“Have to stay positive and forge on. Only way we can operate right now. Focus is fully on Chelsea right now. Recover and prepare.”
Chelsea will look to get back to winning ways when they meet Leeds United at the Elland Road Stadium on Wednesday. The Blues’ position in the top 4 has started looking in danger after three consecutive disappointing results. They couldn’t win the last match against the Wolves even after taking a 2-0 lead. The head coach Thomas Tuchel reacted to the stalemate in the post-match conference. Tuchel said:
“We have made things more and more difficult for ourselves, and it’s quite a lot to overcome to be ready for Leeds.”
