Chelsea are NOT in crisis, claims former striker

first_imgFormer Chelsea forward Chris Sutton insists the club are not going through a crisis, despite their stuttering start to the season.The champions have taken just one point from their opening two Premier League games and suffered a heavy defeat to title rivals Manchester City last weekend.Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho controversially hauled captain John Terry off at half-time at the Etihad Stadium, raising questions about the 34-year-old’s future in the starting line-up.However, Sutton says recent criticism of Terry and his manager has been blown out of proportion and backed Chelsea to rediscover the form which saw them cruise to the title last season.“I don’t think many people are in a position to question Mourinho and his decisions,” Sutton told the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast.“Obviously things don’t seem to be going very well. They started their pre-season late, but in the end it’s about results and Chelsea have had a disappointing start to the season.“I don’t think that Mourinho has taken his eye off the ball in any way.They were beaten by a better Manchester City side at the weekend but I don’t think it’s a crisis.“It wasn’t working at the weekend, Mourinho made a change, it’s as simple as that. It doesn’t mean John Terry is finished by any means. It’s all much ado about nothing.“This is the top, top level. It’s no big deal though as far as I can see. John Terry will come back and play regularly.”last_img
