“Yes. Thank you for the good question because a team that arrives like Chelsea, which is a very new team, it’s a thing that we are still far away from what we want, we are building something there, but we need time to come to the leader against a team that was full of confidence and after to concede because we really, we started the game really bad, very sloppy and we cannot connect, we were very nervous and then how reacts the team.
“They deserve all of the credit the players, of course, and the team I think we were calm after because we started to create chances and force them to make the mistake and then we got the goal and I think after the control was there.
