Di Matteo refutes discontent query

Published 9 Comments

Roberto Di Matteo bristled at suggestions Chelsea were in the midst of another winter of discontent, despite seeing them throw away victory yet again.

The European champions made it three Barclays Premier League games without a win as Liverpool came from behind to snatch a 1-1 draw at Stamford Bridge. That saw Chelsea end the weekend three points adrift of Manchester United at the top of the table in third place, a fortnight after they were bidding to go seven clear at the top.

Blues boss Di Matteo did not take kindly to the 10-point swing being pointed out, saying: "We're in much better shape than in previous years, in a much better position, and very close to our best," he said. "We're still in the mix. But the amount of games you play in this period has some kind of effect."
