Charlie Nicholas has revealed the two Chelsea players causing problems defensively for Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel.

The Blues have become a strong defensive unit since Tuchel took charge but Nicholas believes Chelsea have two weak links.

“The suspicion I’ve got is, defensively, I don’t know if they’ve a lot of cover if they got one or two injuries at the back. I think that could leave them a touch vulnerable,” Nicholas said on the Where’s Jeff podcast.

“We know Reece James is very good going forward, so is Marcos Alonso, but they’re not always as good when they’re playing in defensive roles. I see that being problematic for them.”
