The Belgian keeper conceded twice in the London club’s 2-1 loss to Newcastle United on Saturday. It was the first time that the Stamford Bridge outfit had lost for 22 matches.
However, the 22-year-old has said that they need to put that behind them as they build up to their Champions League match against Sporting Lisbon on Wednesday night. With the European fixture a dead rubber due to the Blues having already qualified in first in their group, their game against Hull City on the weekend might be a more pressing matter for Jose Mourinho’s side.
“There are only difficult games in the Premier League and we know that. The next game is in the Champions League at home and then against Hull, we have to win in front of our fans,” the goal keeper told reporters.
Their loss means that title rivals Manchester City are now only three point behind them as we get closer to the Christmas fixtures. The race to become the Premier League champions has finally come alive after four months of the campaign.
