Mount: Chelsea players know we're better than this

Chelsea ace Mason Mount says there's no complaints about their 2-0 defeat to Leicester City last night.

Mount concedes the Foxes were the superior team.

"We were beaten by the better side," he acknowledged to chelseafc.com.

"We know they are a very good team and coming into the game we knew how tough it would be. They set up very well and sometimes you have to put your hands up and say they were better on the night.

"They took their chances. Two goals before half-time affected us and makes it difficult when you're coming out in the second half. When you're clinical in front of goal you are going to win games. We had a couple but we didn't score.

"We are disappointed we didn't win the game. We know we are better than that. We have to have a look at ourselves, look at how we played, see where we can improve and come back stronger next game."
