Frank Lampard’s side dug in to grind out a point at Stamford Bridge in their first group stage clash, with chances few and far between for both sides.
Sevilla dominated the ball in the first period and the Blues were bailed out by goalkeeper Edouard Mendy as he produced an outstanding reaction save to keep the scoreline down.
Although Chelsea grew into the game in the second half, they struggled to create any major chances, with Kurt Zouma’s tame header and Timo Werner’s dipping strike their best opportunities.
After conceding nine goals in their first five Premier League games, a clean sheet would have been welcomed by Lampard.
However, ex-Blues defender Leboeuf highlighted his former side being pinned back by their opponents on their own turf as a cause for concern.
‘I don’t see what I want to see, I don’t see the players speeding up the game and doing something, changing rhythm,’ Leboeuf told ESPN FC.
‘I saw Mendy is much better than Kepa. It’s a clean sheet, especially after the first half, Sevilla had around 65 per cent possession of the ball away from home at Chelsea in the Champions League, that’s completely abnormal.
‘I’m pleased to see Thiago Silva because he’s a talented player that brings something very special to the defence and makes it more solid, but after that, I don’t see somebody in the midfield, especially offensively, somebody doing something special to create something.
‘Half a chance from Werner, another half a chance from Zouma, that’s it, Champions League guys, Champions League. We want to see something soon.’
