Chelsea are currently fourth in the Premier League and the Blues missed a chance to go level on points with Manchester City who were held down by Newcastle United in a 2-2 draw earlier today.

Chelsea have been unable to get a win in the last three games and have now lost back to back games in the Premier League.

Chelsea have had a busy schedule and the Blues had to play three games in the space of one week, and the Blues didn’t win any.

Jorginho has now admitted that the team might be tired.

Asked whether the Chelsea players were tired after playing Manchester City and Valencia in a hectic week, Jorginho told the BBC Sport: “Maybe. But we created some chances but didn’t score. That’s the problem.”

Meanwhile, Frank Lampard rotated his Chelsea side as he rested the likes of Willian, Cesar Azpilicueta and N’Golo Kante for this game, with Olivier Giroud and Pedro getting a rare start.
