Chelsea's BILLION pound problem: Mauricio Pochettino's headache as Nottingham Forest expose...
There will be times when Chelseas approach looks like a masterstroke and others when it looks like madness. This was definitely the latter.
After the loss at West Ham came a defeat against a near-faultless Nottingham Forest who enjoyed an away day to remember at Stamford Bridge, displaying more evidence of the increased threat they will pose on the road this season after previously giving Arsenal and Manchester United scares.
For Chelsea it was another dominant performance, undone by individual error when they appeared to be in little danger to gift Anthony Elanga Forests winner, and a lack of composure and correct decision-making especially in the final third.
Both re-open the debate that will not go away, especially in these early stages for this team, about the wisdom of Chelseas decision to leave the squad short on experience and put so much faith in young players.
The spotlight shined brightest on misfiring forward Nicolas Jackson, reviving the question of how, after their well-documented 1billion spend over three transfer windows, Chelsea are still short of a proven and guaranteed goalscorer.
