Chelsea have perhaps been guilty of some of the most hasty sales during the past few years. Some of the players sold by the Blues have gone on to establish themselves as World class talents elsewhere. The following are arguably three of the most reckless sales made by Chelsea during recent years.
Antonio Rudiger thinks Maurizio Sarri realised the need to change his tactics following Chelsea’s embarrassing defeat against Manchester City last month.

Manchester City’s Premier League unbeaten run came to an end at the hands of Chelsea on Saturday afternoon as the Blues ran out 2-0 winners.
Former Chelsea favourite Tommy Langley insists the Blues need Maurizio Sarri to issue a rallying call while also stressing the importance of having leaders in the squad.
Eden Hazard has insisted that Chelsea are focused on a top-four finish this campaign and have no designs for the Premier League title.
Chelsea missed out on the first piece of silverware of the season as they were beaten 2-0 by Manchester City in the sunshine at Wembley on Sunday. Jorginho was handed his competitive debut while Callum Hudson-Odoi and Ross Barkey were both given a starting berth in attack after a strong pre-season.
Antonio Conte is having to endure a lot of criticism and pressure following Chelsea’s recent poor performances but he is not prepared to take it lying down.
Chelsea had to right the wrongs from last week’s performance away at Man United but made things worse with an abysmal showing where they were very lucky to come away with a 1-0 loss against Manchester City.

Chelsea secured a hard-fought 1-0 win over Southampton on Saturday as they kept pace in the race for Champions League football next season.

Chelsea will be looking to bounce back from defeat to rivals West Ham as they welcome an inconsistent Southampton side to Stamford Bridge. The Blues are 14 points behind Manchester City at the top of the league in what looks to be a mountain to climb to retain their Premier League title but their midweek win over Huddersfield will give Antonio Conte cause for optimism.
Chelsea travel to Huddersfield for the inaugural Premier League meeting between the sides in what promises to be a stern test for Antonio Conte’s men. The Italian has bemoaned his team’s hectic schedule in recent weeks but with European progress now assured and the small matter of two matches against Barcelona to look forward to in the New Year, Chelsea need to focus on their domestic form if they are to maintain any sort of late charge towards regaining their Premier League title.
