Axel Disasi says he and his Chelsea teammates were left frustrated following our 2-2 draw away at Brentford, with the Frenchman acknowledging the Blues let two points slip away at the Gtech Community Stadium.

The Blues opened the scoring in the first half thanks to a fine Nicolas Jackson header, but a sloppy spell after the break saw Brentford strike through Mads Roerslev and via a scissor-kick from Yoane Wissa.

Chelsea applied pressure in search of an equaliser and it eventually arrived with seven minutes remaining. Cole Palmer delivered a cross into the box following a short corner and Disasi powered home a header at the back post.

The Blues had a couple of late chances to take all three points but ultimately came up short, and Disasi was disappointed his goal didn't result in us ending the afternoon with all three points.

'To be honest we are left frustrated. I think in the first half we deserve to score maybe one goal more.

‘Then after half time they pushed and we have to do better because today we lose two points. I think we had the quality to win this game, so the feeling is a little bit sad.

‘I’m happy to score and we didn’t lose because of this goal, that is good. But it would be a much better feeling if this goal was for the win. It was not the case today but hopefully will be in the future.'

Disasi formed part of a back three alongside Trevoh Chalobah and Levi Colwill as head coach Mauricio Pochettino changed the Blues' shape for the short trip to our west London neighbours.

It was a tactical decision that helped restrict Brentford in the opening period, but the hosts rallied after the interval.

'As a defender of course, when you play every game you want a clean sheet,' said Disasi. 'We have to work on this. It’s not only about us as defenders.

‘It is about all of the team. We have to stay together and to improve on this part of our game. Before the game we knew this team love to cross and put the ball into the box. They scored like this so we have to work hard on this and look to keep clean sheets in the future.'
