Not for the first time this season, Chelsea's inability to kill a game off left Jose Mourinho infuriated last night.
"We are going in one direction and the right direction but it is quite frustrating," Mourinho said after the game. "Football is about getting results and it's quite frustrating as we may have to take a step back in order to be more consistent at the back.
"It's something I don't want to do, to play more counterattacking - but I'm giving it serious thought. If I want to win 1-0 I think I can as I think it is one of the easiest things in football. It is not so difficult, as you don't give players the chance to express themselves."
Might a change of tactics be the only answer for the Portuguese boss?
His side have taken 53 shots on goal in their last three games - but scored just five times. Chelsea also lost two of those games.
Creating chances is clearly the least of Mourinho's worries - but converting them is a big one.
How can Mourinho address the situation? Does he need to buy in January or will a change of tactics have to be implemented?
It is one of life's great unresolved questions. Answers on a postcard, please.
