In a way think this was needed. We're not unbeatable play like shite and don't take chances then you will get punished. 70 odd minutes to get a goal which never happened..need to step it up for the next game big time!

Nah that's Alonso.

Alonso is young and will improve. This is his first season with us. We do need more options though.the crucial attribute he posses which is technique. He just needs more composure and that will come with time.

as one who actually likes matic, with mikel gone we should def try to improve on him. He's less effective in this system than he was with jose's.

the team is good, but has no business in the champions league - huge improvement is needed to compete there.

We pulled a Liverpool today. I hope it wasn't just for April fools and we will make it a Liverpool week, because that means winning against City on Wednesday.

Even though I was frustrated, one thing that put a smile on my face is that AT LEAST, we showed fight and it wasn't a gutless performance. I was crying for a performance like this, just too bad we lost.

I'm out. People like the fine people on talkchelsea makes my life as a Chelsea fan even worse. As embarrassing as our performance today. Reluctant to see the bigger picture. This against City and we go off as well and it's a civil war here.

Yes we as fans have the right to criticize certain players performances after games like these but your posts during the match today was an absolute embarrassement not only to this Forum but also for the Club. Good riddance and please do not come back again.

Horrible run...then again hard to predict results..Thought we'd win or least draw today..Spurs is easier but they're unpredictable as well at times..

Every game a cup final yada yada..just don't repeat today's mistakes and seem a easier ride

Very very unexpected loss, but it had to happen once,,we played quite well actualy, but unfortunely it didnt go in.

It also shows that we indeed look vulnerable without 3:4:3 and while I think Cesc was very good today, maybe we wouldnt concede those two goals without him. Its all maybes tho.

We must put much better performance against City if we want to win. Its going to be quite a breaker that game. If we win, it will boost our confidence superhigh, but if we lose...6 points lost this quick and honestly I wouldnt be so sure about the title anymore. We play Soton, Everton and United, all very difficult games.

Do people really expect Pedro to do well at WB? Yeah, he scored a few goals from that position in the FA Cup but he's never fully convinced and was even given the runaround by Wolves. Asking him to do it in the Premier League, even at home, is suicidal, especially against the likes of Zaha, Puncheon etc. And not to mention, it was so awkward watching him trying to beat players from wide areas. Said this from last season, he's never looked comfortable when asked to do. Surprised Conte didn't play Willian at WB instead.

Know everyone's criticizing Costa and rightly so, but some others had shockers as well. I though Pedro was poor and I think that may have been David Luiz's worst performance this season. He lunged in seemingly 5 times trying to knick in front of a pass and completely missed it. Hazard was completely untouchable in the first half but then kind of went off the boil. Cesc didn't really do much in the second half either.

City game is unbelievably massive now. Win and I'll be confident we'll see the job out. Lose and I'll personally be very, very worried looking at Spuds' remaining fixtures and with Kane still to come back soon.

Would be hugely embarrassing to lose the title from where we were.

Weird how people have different interpretations on things. I thought Pedro was by far our best player today. He messed up sometimes on his final third productivity but was pressing all games, made great runs and for most of match imo, looked like only one capable of making something happen.

I like the way we played before Michy came in. Chelsea just doesn't work with him. Shame we lost the game we should win. Better fix some areas in the summer, urgently.

Surprised to read some of the comments about the performance. Granted the result was pretty disappointing but the actual performance was no worse than the majority of our performances this season which is pretty good.

We lost concentration for about 90 seconds in the entire 90 minutes and unfortunately we conceded 2 very unlucky goals in those 90 seconds. But offensively we were very good and created enough chances to win it despite letting in those 2 goals. 

We would have easily won had we had Moses available or had a bit more luck or gotten than penalty from Townsend or if we had a striker in a decent form. If we had a Remy or Ba (let alone a Drogba) we would have probably scored 4 or 5. 

But as some rightly pointed out, the silver lining here is that this will serve as a wake up to not get complacent and that the title race is always open until it becomes mathematically safe.

Sometimes i wonder if we could draw 0-0, have the best performance ever aside from the finishing  (like the Everton game but all 5 attempts were saved) and people would still moan about how shit we played.

Overall, we played a good game. Just 2 minutes loss of concentration, a bit lack of luck (obvious penalty) and yes, Costa was really really poor.

Games like this happen during the season. I just cannt wait to see Spurs having one those too, because I am sick of watching them winning and winning.

I remember you putting some Chelsea stats and results after the international breaks. They were not really positive. Bloody internationals...

And even when Spurs have a bad game, they somehow get a penalty. 

One day later and this game still hurts :(

Not so much the loss that bothers me it's the way by 15 minutes we were 2-1 down and it stayed that way. Just wasn't happening. Their goalie had the game of his life and some of our players less so.

Hey ho it happens how we respond is what matters..Hopefully not the start of something..

People on hear moan when we win 5-0.

"We could have had more goals if X just didn't mess up his chance! We need to replace him this summer!"

It doesn't seem like the team has a whole lot of confidence either. It doesn't seem like he gets many passes. It could be lack of passing from the rest of the team or he's just not in the positions he should be to receive the ball.
