Arsenal legend Ray Parlour has revealed his surprise at Chelsea’s current form, with the Blues having been in top form before results started to go against Chelsea.
Chelsea have won just once in their last five games, but just a few weeks ago the Blues were celebrating an unbeaten run of 17 games.
Ray Parlour has suggested that Chelsea are currently missing Hakim Ziyech, as the team’s results started to falter in his absence.
“The team that has baffled me at the moment is Chelsea,” the ex-Arsenal and England midfielder told talkSPORT.
“Chelsea were looking so good under Frank, then suddenly they have a couple of defeats. Even against Villa, Villa were superb, looked like they could get something out of the game and nearly won the game.
“Chelsea were knocking on the door as well but Frank must be scratching his head.
“I know they lost Ziyech, who has been sensational since he’s been there, but I thought it could be a very close season for them this year.”
