Alan Hudson, A respects former player and legend of Chelsea FC has said that players like Nigeria’s John Obi Mikel is the reason Chelsea are suffering.
“I think they need a facelift. You can’t carry on with players like John Obi Mikel, you need better players than that in midfield,” Hudson told Reuters.
“They need a clearout of players. Branislav Ivanovic has been tremendous for them but he seems to have hit a brick wall at right back.”
“When they bought Pedro from Barcelona at the start of the season I thought it would give Chelsea more width, with him on one side and Eden Hazard on the other, and they would open their game out a bit.
“They play through the middle too much and rely on Diego Costa up front too much. Costa, in my opinion, is nowhere near as good as people make him out to be.”
