Gone are the days when Chelsea had the likes of John Terry, Frank Lampard, Didier Drogba, Petr Cech, Ashley Cole, Michael Essien, Branislav Ivanovic, Mikel Obi in a single team.
The Chelsea squad seems to be all over the place at the moment, and former Chelsea captain Dennis Wise believes the team is lacking leaders that will bring them out of their current predicament.
Wise believes Chelsea are yet to replace legendary skipper John Terry.
“At the moment they seem all over the place and things haven’t gone as nicely as they’d expect,” he told Premier League Daily.
“I look at some of the personnel who have come in and they’ve found it very difficult to adapt at times to the way of the English Premier League.
“I look at a certain person who went out the door called John Terry, he was a leader of that group and I don’t think at the moment they have someone like that who is in there and can sort these problems out.
“I look at Cahill, and I’d like to think he would be a leader, but at the moment he’s been struggling as well.”
Chelsea’s new arrivals have also struggled to make an impact as of yet and Wise also had something to say about that.
“The players going in, they’re not quite sure what they’ve got to do,” Wise added.
“You look at Bakayoko the other day, is he going to break forward, is he going to hold?
“I don’t really know what he does.
“He’s a little bit in between at the moment and he’s finding it very very difficult in adapting to the Premier League.”
