Chelsea manager Andre Villas-Boas has called the 2-0 defeat to Everton on Saturday the worst loss of his career at Stamford Bridge so far, The
The Blues have now slipped out of the top four after their defeat at Goodison Park, where they were undone by defensive errors. Villas-Boas was even subject to chants from his own supporters who travelled to Everton, who chanted against the decision to substitute Michael Essien. The Portuguese manager conceded that some of the decisions were his fault and he was disappointed with the performance of his players.
Villas-Boas said: ‘I think today was one of our worst games of the season, if not the worst. In our performance today we are short of anything positive. It is a difficult day for us, we take out a lot of negatives from this game. It (the chants) is part of the job. At the moment we are sitting fifth in the league and it is not enough for us.’
Chelsea defender Ashley Cole picked up an injury at Goodison Park in a challenge with Everton defender Phil Neville which led to the second goal. The challenge was fair and the Blues will assess the injury later on today, which Villas-Boas is hopeful will be not serious. The Blues are still without John Terry in the heart of their defence, who has suffered with a knee worry in recent weeks.
