Chelsea played a 3-3 draw against West Brom on Saturday, and it was a frustrating game for Chelsea, as the Blues were 3-0 down at half-time.

The Baggies capitalised on three Chelsea errors to score their first three shots on target, and Frank Lampard’s side had to do the arduous task of coming from behind to draw the game.

Discussing the thrilling encounter on Matchday Live, former Chelsea striker Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink said that Chelsea must stop making unnecessary mistakes, if they want to have a good season.

He said: “It’s a big step but you don’t want to become a team that just reacts after the event.

“You want to become a team that does it straight away. ‘They needed to react in this manner, they did, it was always about that first goal – can you get it as quickly as possible and then you will make them nervous. They did get it.

“And, yes, there were better in the second half, the intensity was higher but it’s still a working progress.

“Giving chances away needs to stop otherwise you’re going nowhere.”
