It was a very difficult game between Chelsea and Sevilla at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday night, as the two teams kicked out their Champions League campaign.

It was a very tactical battle, and Sevilla started the game on the front foot. Chelsea got into the game in the second half, but Sevilla seemed better on the ball all through the game.

Former Chelsea defender Frank Leboeuf analysed the game and said that he was not pleased with how the Spanish side bossed possession at Stamford Bridge.

“I don’t see what I want to see, I don’t see the players speeding up the game and doing something, changing rhythm,” Leboeuf told ESPN FC.

“I saw Mendy is much better than Kepa. It’s a clean sheet, especially after the first half, Sevilla had around 65 per cent possession of the ball away from home at Chelsea in the Champions League, that’s completely abnormal.

“I’m pleased to see Thiago Silva because he’s a talented player that brings something very special to the defence and makes it more solid, but after that, I don’t see somebody in the midfield, especially offensively, somebody doing something special to create something.

“They’re looking for each other, not knowing each other and we saw clearly nothing. The best chance was after an hour from [Sevilla’s] Jordan from a corner kick because no Chelsea player was marking him and he had a fantastic volley, that’s the only thing that I saw.

“Half a chance from Werner, another half a chance from Zouma, that’s it, Champions League guys, Champions League. We want to see something soon.”
