Chelsea manager Bruno Saltor says his team showed incredible fighting spirit and deserved more from their 0-0 draw against Liverpool.

It wasn’t a classic but Chelsea had the best chances created on the night, with midfielder Mateo Kovacic guilty of leaving his shooting boots at home. The last 20 minutes of the encounter though just fizzled out with both teams seemingly content with the point.

This has been a difficult season for Chelsea who are looking for their third permanent manager of the season following the exit of Graham Potter.

Bruno Saltor the unlikely hero who has been tasked with taking up the fire-fighter job however says his players gave everything and he had no complains with their application on the night.

Bruno told reporters : “Yes. We created enough chances to win the game, two goals disallowed. It’s execution. The chances, the boys gave everything, they played with the heart and you can’t ask for more.

“Obviously they are executions, executions and they are in front of goal. They are human beings and the confidence has to be there.

“Sometimes when goes in, after there is a consequence. We just need to keep helping the boys and they’ve been through a lot, it’s been a tough season for them.

“As I said they are human beings, still I know they miss chances. What they could effect the most was the attitude and the effort.”

On a more positive note, midfielder N’Golo Kante was back in action and captained the team on his return- showing little sign of being rusty.

A few of his touches were heavy but his energy and the way he kept on bouncing all-over the pitch was a sign of what is to come if he can keep his fitness for the remaining games of the campaign.
