Ahead of tonight's trip to Liverpool, Curbs told whufc.com: "We looked at it with them. We spoke about it. They can't quite believe how it went ... the way we have set ourselves out this season gives us a chance of getting something and - if we get beat, we get beat - but we didn't give ourselves a chance.
"[Chelsea] was unlike us so far this season. It has steeled us up for what is coming on Wednesday night and on Sunday [against Tottenham Hotspur]. We knew we were going into a tough week. We have started off really badly and can we improve on that on Wednesday?" The manager added that he and the players understood the fan frustration, claiming "we have got to try and repay all the people that come to watch us and all the ones that are going up to Anfield".
