Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho says his players know they made mistakes in the first part of the season but also that they have been unlucky.
The Blues suffered yet another disappointing defeat as they went down 3-1 at Everton on Saturday afternoon.
And Mourinho revealed that confidence is low in the Chelsea locker room.
"We deserved better and played for a better result," Mourinho said after the game.
"It's too heavy for the way the players started the game, finished the game and played during the game. Confidence is low, we're a team with some doubts, about some lucky and unlucky incidents in each game, but I felt the players deserved a better result than we got.
"The biggest concern is that everything goes against us. We know we are making mistakes but with every mistake we are punished immediately. We lose a player for the first time, goal.
"One shot from outside the box, goal. After that it was a fantastic reaction. Eden Hazard had two fantastic chances with two shots, the ball hit the defender twice and when it looks like the ball was going in it goes for a corner.
"In the second half we had control, we changed and took risks. They defended and the first time they crossed the midfield line they scored another goal. Everything is going against us. The players feel that way.
"It's the old story of the striker who, when things are going well, there is a cross and he scores with his elbow or knee. When things go wrong he hits a fantastic shot, the ball hits the bar and post and comes out. Everything is more difficult."
