We’re all disappointed every time we lose. We don’t like losing. That’s the Chelsea mentality, we always want to win games.
‘It was unfortunate that they got another goal, but at 3-0 we still looked confident to push to try to get at least a draw back. We kept pushing until the end but unfortunately we could not get the result.’
However, that second half improvement could not disguise the painful defeat we suffered in the London derby, and Hudson-Odoi says the players are feeling the responsibility for their drop in performance and pinpoints a lack of urgency as one of the issues that cost us against the Gunners.
‘It feels like we let ourselves down,’ he explained. ‘We know that we can do much better than we did. We should have put the same energy we had in the second half into the first half as well. We should have had the same attitude from the get-go and pushed all the way through the 90 minutes. So we’re really disappointed in ourselves.
