Chelsea captain Cesar Azpilicueta has warned the Blues to get their act straight after suffering a scare against the lower division side in the FA Cup.
“With the chances we had, we cannot concede in these kind of circumstances and we have to control better,” Chelsea captain Azpilicueta said.
“We know we have to improve our game if we want to improve as a team and go far, because tonight was a night we could have handled much better.
“It’s not the first game where we didn’t manage the game well, and at the end there we were on our box suffering. Sometimes we can be punished but tonight not, but we know we have to improve.”
Speaking on BT Sport, Azpilicueta added: “For moments we stopped playing as a team and we started doing individual actions that is not our game and we got punished.
“And if we want to play against the best teams and to fight for trophies, we have to improve.”
Goalscorer Tomori also echoed his thoughts.
“In the first half we probably could have killed the game, but we didn’t take our chances,” Tomori said.
“We said at half-time that because we hadn’t taken our chances we had to be solid at the back, try to score another one, but we need to be more clinical.
“I think my goal came at a good time, but it got a bit difficult towards the end when they scored the free-kick.
“It’s a one-off game and teams want to go for it. They were never going to stop and we knew that.
“If we’d got a third goal it would have been a lot easier for us but we didn’t manage to get that so we had to ride it out.”
