According to former Tottenham midfielder Jermaine Jenas, there are several unhappy players at Chelsea and this could affect Chelsea’s quest to finish in the top four.

Jenas told BBC: “They [Chelsea] seem unable to hold on to leads, home or away, and we have seen the first bit of friction from their manager Frank Lampard with regards to the transfer window and him not getting what he wanted.

“Suddenly, Lampard has got a few players at the club who do not appear to be happy – Kepa Arrizabalaga, Olivier Giroud, Marcos Alonso, Willian and Pedro – which is going to have an impact on things.

“They all have a big influence in the dressing room, and that could be a problem for Lampard. How much are they behind him to go and get a top-four finish now?

“He has backed his young players so far – which is fine – but have they got enough to get him in the Champions League places from here? I am not sure, so the next few weeks are going to be very interesting.

“Results like this will give Mourinho and Spurs more confidence and increase the pressure on Chelsea, who are now only four points above them.”

The Blues are currently on a winter break and will welcome Manchester United to Stamford Bridge after the end of the break. A game against Tottenham Hotspur at Stamford Bridge comes up next.
