Chelsea has made a decent number of costly mistakes this season.
Blues manager Thomas Tuchel believes these mistakes are costing them self-confidence and could eventually drag them into the top-four battle.
The number of errors these Chelsea players were making was a real concern and needs to rediscover their form.
“I’m worried about the number of mistakes,” Tuchel said. “In the year 2022, we already had eight big mistakes that led to goals. This is very untypical, very unusual.
“It costs us a lot. Not only a goal, it costs you self-confidence and belief in what you are doing.
“‘It’s a bit fragile at the moment,” Tuchel added, referencing mistakes made by Edouard Mendy and Andreas Christensen in recent games. “Edou knows he can do better and normally does. Andreas knows it’s the right decision to play the ball back. It’s not that we take crazy risks. So it’s hard to analyse.
“I never feel secure in the Premier League. Nobody should. Feeling secure does not keep you on the edge. Feeling secure is very close to being lazy or not fully alert.”
