Chelsea lost tonight 3-1 away in Naples in a strange game that literally was end to end. After a difficult start, Chelsea nicked an away goal after a bobble on a dodgy pitch found Juan Mata who calmly slotted the ball past the keeper to make it 1-0.

With that you'd expect Chelsea to keep their shape try and remain solid and compact but it never happened. Chelsea of old would see these sort of games out and would make it difficult for sides to break us down.

N0-1C by fasthighlights

Napoli hit back with a strike from the edge of the box after our midfield sold themselves the wrong side and gave Levazzi the time to line up his shot and place it into the far corner with Cech having no chance.

Right on half time Napoli got their second as Ivanovic was caught ball watching as a cross came floating over from right to left and Cavani stepped in front of Ivanovic on his shoulder and tapped the ball home past Cech who once again had no chance.

N1-1C by fasthighlights

Napoli scored their third goal after a ball up front wasn't cleared by David Luiz after Ashley Cole has lost his man, Luiz's attempt at clearing the ball rebounded off Cavani and he was in on goal from wide left, he played the ball square to Lavezzi who slotted the ball home as Chelsea were all over the place!

N1-1C by fasthighlights

Chelsea had their chances and so did Napoli with Cole clearing off the line at 3-1, the game was wide open and for the most part Chelsea did OK. However, in important areas once again, Chelsea's defensive frailties cost us once again and we take a 3-1 defecit back to the Bridge.

After watching Napoli you can see how you can break them down and score goals so Chelsea are not out of this tie yet! With the right team selection and performance we can get past this lot and score plenty as they look slow and laboured at the back.

The thing is and once again this season, Chelsea need to sure things up at the back, this has been our major downfall this season and tonight Napoli exposed us. If we don't watch out, with these three up front in the return leg in three weeks time, could they cause us problems again?

Expect more doom and gloom people tomorrow but remember, after watching their defence WE ARE NOT OUT OF THIS TIE YET!

  1. Stop dreaming the tie is overr we were lucky to sure they wil repeat what they have just done because they wasted many chances and scored a few.if we could not beat barmingham at home .do you expect us to beat napoli.avb need to go.we dont need his project.personaly i never had mourinho,ferguson,gurdiola talk about a project.only wenger and look what he is doing at arsenal.

  2. Why mereiles instead of essien?

  3. Total shambles. You are looking through Rose tinted windows mate. We were awful again. AVB made a shocking selection. Putting Meireles, Bosingwa and Malouda in the same team? Only way to better that would have been including Kalou and Mikel as well! Terrible. FA Cup is now only hope, and I cannot see us beating Birmingham. We are diabolical at the moment. So no, we have NO chance. Sorry to be pessimistic but I can't help it. CHANGE THE FORMATION!!! IT DON'T WORK!!!

  4. I agree mate! Selection was terrible as the performance. Meireles played 90 mins against Birmingham but was still chosen ahead of Lampard and Essien who were both fresher after not playing against Birmingham.

  5. abramovic liv us alone or call mourinho back he is the key to our problem will dont need any other person than mourinho
