The Blues have lost our last two games at Stamford Bridge, losing 1-0 to Valencia in the Champions League and 2-1 to Liverpool in the Premier League.

Chelsea legend Pat Nevin insists he feels positive despite both losses.

“It isn’t often that you lose two home games in a row at Chelsea and still feel oddly positive,” Nevin told Chelsea’s official website.

“For the second time this season we went toe-to-toe with Liverpool, the European champions and Premier League leaders, and yet again we didn’t not look far away from their standard. There were a few pivotal moments in the game that decided the points and they underlined how tight this league is.

“Certainly the fouls given for their two goals were avoidable. For the first Andreas Christensen just had to stay on his feet instead of going for a ball he couldn’t get.

“The second free-kick that led to the Firmino’s goal could have been avoided had the referee invested in an adequate pair of glasses. It was never a foul and every Chelsea fan in the ground let him know it, but to no avail.

“It was disappointing to see us lose another goal from a set-piece cross, especially as it was them taking advantage of our static zonal marking. Didn’t we used to regularly do that to them?

“The figures for possession and shots at goal, 13-6 for us, was another argument in favour of how unlucky we were.

“Maybe the most obvious and painful moment was the goal by Cesar Azpilicueta which was disallowed (albeit chalked off correctly) after VAR scrolled back about 10 minutes to find a problem.

“Oh, alright I exaggerate a bit, but it was a long way back that Mason Mount’s boot was inadvertently offside.”
