John Terry casts his scathing verdict on Chelsea, stressing that Thomas Tuchel’s side look ‘very unbalanced’ after Southampton’s defeat and that they will miss Reece James when he’s not playing – greeting the defender as a ‘future captain’

Chelsea legend John Terry has expressed disappointment after the club’s frustrating defeat to Southampton on Tuesday.

Raheem Sterling had put the Blues in charge before strikes by Romeo Lavia and Adam Armstrong gave Thomas Tuchel’s side their second loss of their first five league games of the season.

Terry, widely regarded as one of the club’s best ever players, believes the current Chelsea side looks ‘unbalanced’ as the transfer window draws to a close.

In a tweet on Wednesday morning, he wrote: “I hate to see us beaten.

Southampton was very good but we look very unbalanced at the moment. I can’t wait for the window to close and be our regular squad, team and formation.’

In the same tweet, Terry also praised defender Reece James – stating that the club will miss the 22-year-old when he’s not playing.

The England international missed the match at St Mary’s due to illness.

Terry commented, “We miss Reece so much when he’s not playing. 22 years old and a future captain in my opinion.

The former centre-back is better placed than most to give his opinion on who should be Chelsea’s captain, having won 16 major trophies during his time wearing the armband at Stamford Bridge.

Sky Sports pundit Gary Neville responded to Terry’s tweet, posting a post comparing the club’s owner, Todd Boehly, to United’s former executive vice chairman, Ed.

“Your husband Todd Woodward must stop wandering like a kid in a candy store!” Neville answered Terry.

Chelsea have already recruited Raheem Sterling, Kalidou Koulibaly and Marc Cucurella this summer – spending nearly £150m to date.

However, the club has lost some big names this summer with Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen leaving at the end of their contracts, while Romelu Lukaku and Timo Werner are also leaving on loan.

Chelsea are looking at a number of potential transfers before the window expires on Thursday.

The Blues will confirm a transfer for Leicester centre-back Wesley Fofana in a deal worth £70million plus extras, after the Frenchman completed his medical in New York.

Chelsea are also in talks of a £75million deal for RB Leipzig centre-back Josko Gvardiol in a move that could see the Croat on loan to the Bundesliga for one season.

Tuchel’s side was also keen to capture Everton star Anthony Gordon before the window closes.

But Terry’s former team-mate and current Toffees manager Frank Lampard said on Tuesday that the club will not consider doing business with Chelsea after failing to meet the deadline he had in mind.
