Former Chelsea player Alan Hudson wasn’t impressed with Chelsea’s 4-0 victory over Crystal Palace at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.
According to Hudson, Chelsea were lucky to beat Crystal Palace and still have weaknesses in the squad that need addressing.
“I wouldn’t get too excited about a clean sheet against Palace as they, Palace, were absolutely shocking in all parts of the field,” he told CaughtOffside.
“They need a top class Number 5, a player like (Virgil) van Dijk who can organise things, as they haven’t any kind of leader although Silva was brought in to do that but had a nightmare at WBA.
“Palace are a Jekyll and Hyde team of late I would not take any notice of this performance from Chelsea.
“Until the first goal Chelsea looked really short of ideas until a tremendous blunder gave them the first goal.
“Chelsea were very lucky to come up against such poor opposition after such a poor start, rather lucky at Brighton, poor against Liverpool and average against Spurs..
“Frank will be delighted but it was a case of papering over the cracks in my eyes.”
