Chelsea’s recent form has been far from impressive as they prepare to take on Watford, at Vicarage Road, in the Premier League this evening.

Three defeats in four games have seen the merits of Maurizio Sarri’s style of football questioned.

Anything other than a win tonight will affect Chelsea’s chances of a top-four finish whilst also seeing the pressure on the manager to turn things around.

Ahead of the game, addressing the media ahead of the trip to Hertfordshire, Sarri is quoted by the media source, the Express, as having remarked about what happened in the loss to Leicester City and the way forward:

“Right now, we have to think about us. Only about our team.

“The most important thing is our reaction to this result. In the match, the reaction was not right.

“I have an idea about what happened. I want confirmation – so I have to speak with my players.

“I want to speak with the group, first of all. Then with three, four or five players.

It is an interesting final line, which three, four or five players do you think are not quite performing as they have been?

Alonso, Jorginho, are maybe two, but who else?

  • Willian needs scores a goal in every game, to counterbalance his laziness, and his unwillingness to track back, every time he loses possession.

    • Those calling Willian lazy ate just haters ! He is doing far better than a whole lot of players at Chelsea-
      Jorginho ‘s coming just messed up the whole Chelsea setup, he is just a spoiler – Alonso must be benched, he doesn’t know what he is doing – Chelsea need two very strong strikers, and another defensive midfielder – Kante must assume his former position asap, and Eden Hazard must stay !!!!!

  • Jorghino has been a disgrace since making Son of Spurs look like a superstar with that solo goal against us when we lost to them. He is unable to defend and unable to score. Can someone really tell me what does Jorghino that Febregas wouldn’t be able to do? If he was really brought in to instil Sarri’s ball to the CFC players, than we don’t need him anymore as that “famous Sarri’s ball” has been found out and shows the world what kind of a useless player Jorghino is. It’s time for him to be dropped permanently, and bring back the best holding midfielder in the world (Kanté) in the position where he does what he knows best. And players like Son will just be an average player of a team like Spurs, and unable to score solo effort goal against a team of our caliber.

  • Sarri n Zola, let Jogiho rest n Kante to play dat role. Emmerson tp come in for Alonso, Chrisenten for Liuz. Morata be sold, he is a waste. NEEDS another goalkepper, two strikers, two defenders nd one defensive nd attacking midfienders.

  • Sarri needs to rotate the squad or he is risking his job.chelsea don’t have patience in failures, he should learn from past coaches.we want results not Sarri ball which never led Napoli to the top.

  • Chelsea must get a REAL GOALKEEPER, this Ariza is not Chelsea standard at all, totally dependable !!!
