The centre-back has, today, vowed to regain the lead that the Blues have lost over Manchester City following the defeat to London rivals Tottenham yesterday.
“It’s hard to see them[Man City] claw us back, we were eight points in front and now we’re level on points.
“It’s disappointing to have lost that lead but we said in the dressing room we’ll come together, put a run together and hopefully get a lead again.”
“We should have had a penalty at Southampton and we should have had another one at 1-0.
“The game’s finished then. Sometimes you get them, sometimes you don’t, and in the last few games we haven’t.
“We’re very disappointed to start the New Year with a defeat but we’ll move on from this.
“I thought at times we played some really good football, it just wasn’t our day so we’ll forget this one and move on very quickly.
“Once we got the goal they were on the back foot but they scored from nothing and were back in the game.”
