切尔西 playmaker Juan Mata, has admitted that his side is struggling to cope with the loss of Didier 德罗巴 from their line-up, reports 天空
德罗巴 left 切尔西 in the summer for a move to Shanghai Shenhua and Mata has confessed that he and his fellow 切尔西 players have struggled to adapt to the Ivory Coast striker’的缺席。马塔说：We’ve had to learn to cope without him because for many long years, he was 切尔西’s lightning conductor. With 德罗巴, we were conditioned to play in a certain way.”
德罗巴’缺席可能是切尔西的一个促成因素’最近的表现差强人意，Roberto Di Matteo失去了工作，被临时经理Rafael Benitez取代。尽管本赛季开局令人印象深刻，但切尔西在过去七场英超联赛中均未获胜，却发现自己落后联盟领袖曼联10分。
Mata’s compatriot Fernando Torres has been tasked with replacing 德罗巴, but Torres’ two goals in midweek against FC Nordsjaelland were his first in more than 12 hours of football. Mata, however, refuses to blame Torres for 切尔西’s poor form, insisting that his style of play is different to 德罗巴’s and that 切尔西 need to adapt to that.
“他的奔跑吧’t the same. He’s not a funnel for our play like 德罗巴 could be,马塔说。 “他没有’喜欢保持角色。他更喜欢寻找空间并面对目标。对我来说，他仍然是世界上最好的前锋之一。”
