Chelsea fell to a shock 1-0 defeat to Bournemouth on Saturday at Stamford Bridge, our fourth loss in five Premier League games.

According to former Arsenal striker Ian Wright, Chelsea should have utilised our creative players more in the defeat to Bournemouth.

Speaking on Match of the Day, Ian Wright said: “With Jorginho and the calibre of the player he is because when you play it into him, he does this (pass through the lines) and they’re away.

“This is what Bournemouth did though, they gave people like Rudiger the ball. Jorginho is in a position where he can’t receive it and this is what was happening.

“Second-half, Zouma, can he put that into Mason Mount? I don’t think they were doing any of this today, he then gives it away.

“Here’s another example, just play it into Jorginho. I think that Mason Mount, Tammy Abraham, Hudson-Odoi when he came on, they were starved off the ball.

“In the end, I think Chelsea were a victim of themselves. They didn’t give it to the players that can pass the ball.”
