How frustrated are you after Chelsea’s 3-3 draw with Southampton?
“Yes, I am frustrated and the players are. They would be because the first half was as good as we have played this season. Very much so, we played some great football. Get some good goals and we could have had some more.
“When you concede before half-time, you know that can change the tone of the game a lot. Then, we go 3-2 up and concede a late goal from a free kick.
“It is disappointing, you want to pick up points at home against teams like Southampton, irrespective of them being a good team who can make things very difficult for you. In the second half, we could have dealt with it better.”

What did you make of Timo Werner’s goals?
“Yes, they are really good individual goals in terms of how he made them for himself. He looked sharp, our combination play in the first half was very sharp. For Timo to get those goals was great for him in terms of getting his confidence on his first Premier League goals. I am sure we will see a lot more from him.”
How disappointed with the way you conceded the second goal?
“Yes, they are mistakes that concern you. It was a situation that we should have clearly dealt with in a much better and simpler terms. They you make a goal and it is 2-2. If you are going to concede those kinda goals, then it doesn’t matter how well you play in periods of games, it is something that we can’t have in our game.”
Late goals a mentality issue?
“Yes, there is certainly a game management element of it in a game. We want to have a lead and see it off. We turnover the ball that led to the free kick and then it is the second balls. There’s a lot of elements that led to it, you can recreate that in training and talk about it a lot but it is very disappointing when it happens.”
