Begovic admits Blues despondency

Can Buriram United take any positives from ACL 2019 disappointment?

Goalkeeper Asmir Begovic admits the Chelsea squad are growing increasingly despondent following their 3-1 defeat to Everton, but dismissed claims of unrest in the dressing room.

A hat-trick from first-half substitute Steven Naismith saw the Toffees triumph 3-1 over the defending champions at Goodison Park and ensured another poor result for Jose Mourinho's men.

The Blues have now suffered three defeats in their first five league games, marking their worst start to a Premier Season in 29 years, but Begovic is convinced they will soon bounce back, despite admitting the dressing room is flat.

"That is probably a fair judgement," the 28-year-old is quoted as saying by FourFourTwo.

"No one was kicking off in the dressing room – nothing. We had to pick ourselves up. There are lots of games to go, we cannot feel sorry for ourselves or points fingers. We will get that good feeling through the squad again.

"I think we still have good character, guys who believe in themselves, guys who can make a difference and guys who have a lot of confidence. Sometimes, that can be an issue."
