'Chelsea Performance Bordering Disgrace'

Liverpool legend Graeme Souness didn't mince his words in his evaluation of Chelsea's performance against Manchester City on Saturday.
 
 
Souness believes a number of the Chelsea stars were passengers during the 3-0 defeat at the hands of City, and that their performance was almost disgraceful.
 
"There is a nucleus of a very good team there," he said on SNF. "But for them to get anywhere near the big trophies like the Premier League and Champions League, there has to be several new faces.
 
"It was a team with something to play for against a team going through the motions. Some of Chelsea's play was bordering on a disgrace.
 
"It was a good game for City, off the back of a really good win and qualifying for the semi-finals of the Champions League. They have their tails up, but they met a Chelsea team with players who you would expect to be at it - and they weren't.
 
"The ones that have been good in the past have to step up to the mark again. Diego Costa went through the motions today, Eden Hazard, the Player of the Year last year, is coming back, and I don't understand why (Nemanja) Matic doesn't play in the more difficult games. He was missed greatly today."
