The Chelsea Legend voiced his concerns with the team’s performance on social media after Southampton defeated Chelsea 2-1 courtesy of a first half comeback.
Romeo Lavia and Adam Armstrong scored for the home team to complete a comeback in the first half and held on to the lead to earn their first victory at home this season.
Sterling opened the scoring at St. Mary’s Stadium for the Blues with a close-range tap-in, but Lavia promptly quickly found the equaliser with his first Saints goal.
The home team later gained a two-goal edge in the last seconds of the first half thanks to Armstrong.

In the second half, Southampton upped their game and might have scored a third goal had Silva not prevented Salisu with an amazing goal-line clearance.
After winning just two games and losing two out of five, Thomas Tuchel’s team had yet another subpar start to the season. This season, they have only played one impressive game, a 2-2 draw at Stamford Bridge against Tottenham.
John Terry took to his official twitter profile to express his frustrations, and it appears that he is not too thrilled about the team’s display.
“I hate seeing us get beat. Southampton we’re very good, but We look very unbalanced at the minute. I can’t wait for the window to close and get our settled squad, team and formation. We miss Reece so much when he doesn’t play. 22 years old and a future captain in my opinion.” – he said.

At St. Mary’s Stadium, Chelsea fared horribly against a youthful Hasenhuttl side, performing far below their standards. There must now be reasons to be worried given the season’s terrible start. Surely the solution requires more than just spending cash.
Meanwhile, Southampton surpasses Chelsea and returns to winning with their three points, moving them up to seventh position.
Next up for them is a trip to Wolves. Chelsea struggled to find their footing yesterday night, so Tuchel will be hoping they can improve against West Ham on Saturday.
