On the other hand, Chelsea fell behind in the second half, allowing Newcastle to take the lead once more after Jamaal Lascelles scored twice in the span of sixty seconds at the hour mark. Thiago Silva then gave Joelinton a third goal.
The experienced center-back, who is typically the last guy back for Chelsea, was the last man back when he under-hit a pass, which allowed Joelinton to enter the game for an easy one-on-one.
To make matters even more difficult for Chelsea, the team’s captain, Reece James, was dismissed from the game shortly after that, and Anthony Gordon scored the fourth goal of the afternoon for the home team.
Silva believes that he played a larger role than most in the thrashing defeat that Chelsea suffered, and he expressed his opinion on social media after the game. Chelsea were significantly below par throughout the entire match, particularly in the second half.
On her Instagram account, the 39-year-old woman wrote, “I’m crushed.” Today had not been a pleasant day for us at all.
“I would like to extend my sincere apologies to everyone for the loss, but to my teammates in particular, who have faith in me and support me on a daily basis.” Each and every responsibility is mine. It is time for us to gather our strength and come back even stronger.
Mauricio Pochettino, the manager of the team, downplayed the mistake made by his defender after the game. He believed that the most significant problem was the collective attitude of the team rather than the individual mistakes of the players.
“That is an error; I am not going to talk about errors at this time.” When I say energy, I mean that we weren’t in the right place at the right time… We did not have sufficient preparation to compete in today’s event. That is something that worries me,’ Jose Mourinho, the manager of Chelsea, said.
According to the team, “We felt that we were ready to participate today, but we did not do it in the manner that the tournament required.” Even if Newcastle wasn’t really that good, it was still a straightforward victory. I would like for you, Chelsea, to come here and show how difficult it would be for them to perform in order to win the game and defeat us.
“Because it was so easy, we decided to give in.” Through our lack of competitiveness in each and every task, we failed to demonstrate that we were competing for anything of significance.
It was because of this that I felt irritated and disappointed. Not only are we a young team, but we still have a lot to learn. I find these kinds of games to be irritating because they encourage people to exhibit more personality and character than they would otherwise.
Despite the fact that we are still young, we simply cannot afford to miss out on this chance to shine. It is not possible for us to come from Tottenham or Manchester City, two teams that are admired by people all over the world, and then say something like, “OK, I stop one step before, I don’t put in the effort at the right time, OK, no problem, it will fix my teammate in behind.” That presents a problem.
In this regard, we need to be more consistent in our actions. Without a doubt, it is mental, and it is not attitude; it is about demonstrating greater strength in our mental game and being prepared to compete. The people who play football are not the same as these individuals. I am able to play football, and you are able to play football; however, will we be able to compete with ourselves? My goal is to be prepared to compete, but we weren’t ready to do so today.
