There was gloom and frustration written on the faces of Chelsea players after the 2-0 defeat to Leicester City on Tuesday night.

The Blues were well beaten by the home side at the King Power Stadium, and it was a very poor display from Frank Lampard’s side who were outplayed by a well drilled Brendan Rodgers side.

Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount, who’s seen as a future captain for the team has revealed it’s time the team looks at itself and make the needed improvement.

“We were beaten by the better side,” Mason Mount acknowledged after the 2-0 defeat to Leicester City.

“We know they are a very good team and coming into the game we knew how tough it would be. They set up very well and sometimes you have to put your hands up and say they were better on the night.

“They took their chances. Two goals before half-time affected us and makes it difficult when you’re coming out in the second half. When you’re clinical in front of goal you are going to win games. We had a couple but we didn’t score.

“We are disappointed we didn’t win the game. We know we are better than that. We have to have a look at ourselves, look at how we played, see where we can improve and come back stronger next game.”

The midfielder added: “We are on a learning curve. Every day we need to get better, on the training ground and when we play. It takes time. We are definitely going to get there.

“We are getting to know each other more and more, and hopefully by the end of this season we will be in a good place.”
