Chelsea lost tempo - Di Matteo
- From the section Football
Chelsea interim manager Roberto Di Matteo admits losing 2-0 at home to Newcastle has made their push for fourth spot in the Premier League more difficult, as the Blues now sit four points off the Champions League places with only two games left.
Di Matteo points out his side have played six games in 17 days and have been "pushing very hard" for two months, blaming a loss of "tempo" for Wednesday's defeat.
The caretaker boss hopes his side can pick themselves up for Saturday's FA Cup final against Liverpool.
