Frank Lampard’s men have still not won at Stamford Bridge this season in all competitions after the Blues were beaten 2-1 by Liverpool on Sunday.

Chelsea conceded two setpiece goals in the first half, and former Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has picked fault with three Chelsea players for their poor defending that led to the goals conceded.

For the first goal, Mohamed Salah rolled the ball to Trent Alexander-Arnold from a free kick, who just fired a shot from outside the box that went past Kepa Arrizabalaga into the corner of the net.

Chelsea’s defensive wall was too slow to close the ball down and Jorginho appeared to turn his back on the strike, but Mourinho hasn’t chosen to blame only Jorginho, but he also blamed goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga for poor positioning and Mateo Kovacic for also failing to react on time to block the shot.

Mourinho believes that a certain John Terry would have no trouble blocking that shot and taking one for his team.

“I think the goalkeeper should be a little bit more on his side and not be afraid of the ball either the wall,” Mourinho told Sky Sports.

“It’s very difficult for the ball to go other the wall and if it does it’s a slow ball not a fast ball.

“Also the players on the side of the wall have to be much more ready to attack this ball.

“Maybe not just Jorginho, maybe also [Mateo] Kovacic to close and block that ball.

“This is the kind of ball I can see a John Terry or Jamie Carragher diving to block the ball, with the chest.

“It’s little details that can cost you points.”
