Sierra Leone-born Chelsea defender Trevoh Chalobah has admitted in his post-match interview that Chelsea players are suffering just like the supporters after their 2-0 defeat to Brentford on Wednesday night at Stamford Bridge.
The London club are in a desperate situation to lift themselves as they sit 11th, fourteen points adrift of the top six, with six games left to play in this campaign.
They are yet to win a football match under caretaker manager Frank Lampard since Graham Potter was sacked.
Lampard’s side suffered another home defeat 2-0 by West London rivals Brentford on Wednesday night – Lampard’s fifth defeat from five matches.
Speaking to the club’s website, Chalobah, 23, who is one of the academy graduates, expressed concern as he admitted tough times.
“It’s a very tough one,’ said Chalobah after the final whistle against Brentford. ‘For me, being here since I was young as well, it’s difficult to see the club I’ve supported all my life is in a difficult situation now.
But we’ve got to stick together. It’s obviously a difficult moment for us, for the team, and we’ve just got to look forward to the next game and try and give our best.
“Everyone’s feeling it right now. As I said, all we can do is keep going every day, working hard in training, turning up and trying to do our best.”
Following several loan spells, Chalobah made his Chelsea debut in the 2021 UEFA Super Cup against Villarreal on August 11th 2021, in their 6–5 in a penalty shoot-out victory after the match finished in a 1–1 draw after extra time.
Three days later, Chalobah made his Premier League debut in Chelsea’s opening match of the season against Crystal Palace, where he also scored his first-ever Premier League goal in a 3–0 win.
This season he has been in and out of the squad making nineteen appearances as they struggled to regain top form.
