Chelsea great Joe Cole was left disappointed as his ex club failed to win at Champions League opponents Real Madrid last night.
Cole insists the Blues should be frustrated with their Champions League semi-final first-leg performance at Real Madrid as they should have put the tie to bed.
Thomas Tuchel’s Chelsea played out a 1-1 draw away at the 13-time European champions on Tuesday night and while they took a vital away goal back to west London for next week’s return leg, the visitors missed a great deal of chances to add to their tally.
Cole told BT: “They were the most physical side, it’s disappointing they could not to put tie to bed.
“Tuchel missed a trick not getting Reece James on earlier or Callum Hudson Odoi being brought on. He will have a tinge of disappointment, Real Madrid were there for taking.
“I don’t think they [Madrid] will play as bad as that in the second leg. It was a good result but could have been better.
“Real Madrid were one or two yards off it. Chelsea got into good positions so many times, but with better decisions in the last third, it could have been more comfortable.”
