JIMMY FLOYD HASSELBANK criticized Chelsea for playing at Nottingham Forest and was concerned about their lack of creativity.
Raheem Sterling’s first goal at the Premiere since August gave the Blues their second win in six days after beating Bournemouth on Boxing Day.
But the Graham Potter team showed a lackluster game in the second half and remained in the 63rd minute.
Chelsea missed a corner and ex-Tottenham player Serge Aurier was given time and space to control and shoot Kepa Arrizabalaga.
Incredibly, they landed just ONE shot on goal in the entire second half, compared to Forest’s nine, who deservedly walked away with a point.
With just four wins in 10 league games under Potter now, Hasselbaink was dismayed by what he saw.
Speaking to Sky Sports, he said: “Chelsea were far from good enough.
“You know Forest will act differently at 1-0 and you need to be able to deal with that.
“What really worries me is that they don’t create chances.
“You must come here and win. No matter how, you need to come down here to the bottom of the league and win.

“And if you tie, the best player on the field should be Dean Henderson, which was not the case.
“It’s bad to defend against Chelsea. Everyone looks at the ball and forgets Aurier.”
As a result, Chelsea are seven points behind the Champions League places.
And the gap could be TEN by the time they return to action against defending champions Manchester City on Thursday.
