Chelsea were beaten 2-1 by Southampton at the St Mary’s Stadium on Tuesday night.

It was an awful performance from the Chelsea team and one of the worst performances we’ve seen from Chelsea under Thomas Tuchel.

Chelsea have now lost two games in just 5 matches this season, and it’s the first time since becoming Chelsea manager that Thomas Tuchel will lose two straight away games.

Chelsea’s next game is at home to West Ham on Saturday, and former Blue Joe Cole, has warned that it’s a must win game for the Blues.

The former Chelsea star told BT Sport: “Chelsea just ran out of steam, they didn’t have any answers. After the first 20 minutes they looked a bit off it, there were plenty of unforced errors.

“Tuchel has got a lot of questions he’s going to have to answer on that journey back to London. It was as poor a performance as I’ve seen from Chelsea under him.

“I can’t remember them having a chance in the second half. It’s a very disappointing night for Chelsea.

“They face West Ham this weekend and it’s a must-win game now because you can’t lose three of your first six games and think about getting into the Champions League.

“It’s a tough period for the club. Tuchel has problems, he’s definitely got problems.”
