It’s beginning to look like a bad season for the Blues as Chelsea are yet to get a victory in the last three games and are being compounded with injury problems.

Former Chelsea player-manager Ruud Gullit has revealed that the sale of certain players during the summer has weakened the team rather than improve it.

Gullit told beIN SPORTS: “When you win a title, things change. The opposition is more alert.

“Plus the fact that there’s the Champions League. There’s a lot of things to play for. You have to divide your team in a manner that a lot of players can play.

“Chelsea also had a lot of problems [over the summer]… I think they sold some good players – [Nemanja] Matic, [Diego] Costa – and it has been difficult to replace them.”

Next up for Chelsea is Saturday’s trip to Vicarage Road to face Marco Silva’s high-flying Watford. Can the Blues return to winning ways?
