Former Chelsea defender, Glen Johnson, has warned manager, Thomas Tuchel after the Blues fell behind Manchester City and Liverpool in the race for the Premier League title.
Tuchel’s men began last weekend at the top of the Premier League table, one point above Pep Guardiola’s side and two ahead of Liverpool.
However, Chelsea surrendered to just their second Premier League defeat of the season against West Ham on Saturday, losing 3-2 against the Hammers at the London Stadium.
Man City are now on top of the Premier League table with 35 points from 15 games, while Liverpool are in second place with 34 points from the same number of games and Chelsea is in the third position with 33 points from 15 games.
“I don’t see either Liverpool or Manchester City dropping many points, so it’s going to be a big couple of weeks for Chelsea,” Johnson told Betting Odds.
“If you are going to win the league, then any game you score two goals is a match that you must win.
“Two goals should be good enough to win almost every football match, so to lose 3-2 is super disappointing for them.
“They brought West Ham into the game when they should have been out of sight. That’s what happens at this level, if you don’t put the game to bed, then the other team is good enough to come back at you.
“They have one way of playing without [Romelu] Lukaku and then when he’s playing, then it’s a totally different style and I think we saw that in the two halves against West Ham.”
