Martinez Disappointed With Defending

Martinez Disappointed With Defending

Everton's dismal start to the season continued with a home defeat to Chelsea, a game Everton won last season, managing to concede 6 goals in the process.

Everton were two down within the first couple of minutes and defensive mistake after defensive mistake followed, despite generally controlling the play and creating and scoring enough chances to create a scenario where we should be winning the game.

Blues manager Roberto Martinez expressed his disappointment at the defending after the game:

'I thought we were very good going forward in the way we controlled the game for long spells and created chances to score three goals. I don't think many teams will score three against Chelsea this season.'

'But the two boxes are going to dictate the scoreline and we were too soft with our defending. Every time the ball was around our 18-yard box we had a real sense of fear of it ending up in the back of the net.'

'We have conceded 10 goals in three games and that's not like us at all. We have a back five that we didn't change the whole of last season when we kept 15 clean sheets but, at the moment, we are not at that level.'
