Chelsea midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek admits his side were ‘sloppy’ after they lost 2-1 at Wolves on Wednesday night.
Maurizio Sarri’s side took the lead through Loftus-Cheek’s sixth goal in his last seven club games, but second half strikes from Raul Jimenez and Diego Jota turned the game for Wolves to the delight of an atmospheric Molineux.
Speaking afterward Loftus-Cheek admitted his side lost control of the game during the second 45 minutes.
“We felt in control in the first half. We felt comfortable and were playing good football. They came out fast in the second half and we were sloppy as a team. If you’re sloppy you pay for it in the Premier League.’’ Loftus-Cheek told the BBC.
“We should expect to play well whoever plays. We need to turn this around quickly as we have a tough game at the weekend [Manchester City]. We’re very disappointing. We pick our heads up and go again.
“[I scored] Another goal but it doesn’t count when you lose. When you score a goal and lose it’s not the same feeling.”
The result leaves Chelsea ten points behind leaders Manchester City at the top, though The Blues do have the chance to close the gap when they host Pep Guardiola’s side at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.
