JIMMY FLOYD HASSELBAINK has slammed Chelsea for their performance at Nottingham Forest – and was left concerned by their lack of creativity.
Raheem Sterling‘s first Prem goal since August put the Blues on course for a second victory in six days after they beat Bournemouth on Boxing Day.
But Graham Potter‘s side turned in a lacklustre second half display and were pegged back on 63 minutes.
Chelsea failed to deal with a corner and ex-Tottenham man Serge Aurier was given time and space to control and poke past Kepa Arrizabalaga.
Incredibly, they mustered up just ONE attempt on goal throughout the whole second half, compared to nine for Forest, who deservedly walked away with a point.
It’s now just four wins in 10 league games under Potter’s guidance and Hasselbaink was worried by what he saw.
Speaking on Sky Sports, he said: “It was far from good enough from Chelsea.
“You know at 1-0 up Forest will do something different, and you need to be able to deal with that.
“What really worries me is that they don’t create chances.
“You have to come here and win. It doesn’t matter how, you need to come here, bottom of the league, and win.

“And if you draw, the best player on the pitch has to be Dean Henderson, and that wasn’t the case.
“Its bad defending from Chelsea. Everyone’s looking at the ball and forgetting about Aurier.”
The result leaves Chelsea seven points behind the Champions League places.
And the gap could be TEN by the time they return to action against reigning champions Manchester City on Thursday.
