Chelsea’s manager, Rafa Benitez has urged his team to go on and put in more effort in their home games, as he feels that his sides home form has been letting them down.
Recently, Chelsea went on to lose by one goal to nil against QPR, which was then followed by a two goals to nil loss against Swansea City.
Given the quality that the team possesses, Benitez feels that they don’t do themselves and the fans justice when they fail to perform in games at home.
One of the other major reasons behind this, is down to the reason that the Blues were considered to be one of the hardest teams to face off against at their home ground.
Most teams feared to travel to the Stamford Bridge to play against them, but with the way they have been playing, now most teams would much rather play them at the Bridge, as opposed to away from it.
When talking about this trend and the way things are going for the team, the Blues manager, Rafa Benitez is reported to have said: "We are doing very well away but, at home, the other teams wait deep and we have less space"
“We are still creating chances but we have to be more clinical.”
"If we score goals and take our chances, it will be completely different because the other team will be more open but, if that's not the case, like it has been in the last two games, it becomes more difficult.”
Benitez then went on to add: "When you play away and have space, with the players we have, they can make a big difference. When you play at home and there are 11 men behind the ball, you have to find space and be more precise. We know we have to do different
With them now having signed Demba Ba, the team is looking to be as good as they could get up front. They have been scoring goals for fun recently and should they be able to play the free flowing football that has made them a treat to watch, they could easily
start producing the results at home.
