TalkSport’s Durham: “Chelsea will struggle to finish in top 4, Hazard wants to leave”

TalkSport pundit Adrian Durham criticised Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri after the Blues suffered a 3-1 defeat at Wolves.

The popular journalist claimed the West London side will struggle to reach the top 4 this year:

“I would love to hear from Chelsea fans because I’m pretty certain that they would agree with most of the points I’m about to make,” Durham started.

“There’s no pace up front for Chelsea: Callum Hudson-Odoi has to be given a chance in the first team at some point. How he hasn’t had one I do not know.

“I’ve heard stories about a loan spell, just get him in the team! There’s no pace, no zip, it’s not full of energy, it’s not bright. Get him in there and see what he can do.

Durham suggested even more changes:

Ethan Ampadu in for David Luiz, it’s a no brainer. Luiz cannot defend, Ampadu can and Ampadu can do all the things Luiz can. If they want him to balloon a 30-yard free-kick into orbit like Luiz does then he can do that too!

Olivier Giroud over Alvaro Morata… always, always, always has to happen! How Morata started last night I do not know.

“Put Kante where he belongs. Even with Jorginho out of the team against Wolves Kante wasn’t where he belongs because Fabregas was there. Ridiculous!

Ruben Loftus-Cheek always has to start.

“Full-backs need a kick up the backside, Sarri needs to stop smoking because that’s a level of unprofessionalism that he’s bringing into Chelsea Football Club.

“Right now, what Chelsea are on course for is a place out of the top four and Eden Hazard wanting to leave.

“He [Sarri] is steering them, he’s hurtling them towards a place where Chelsea do not want to be and it’s not good management.”
