Gary Neville was not impressed with Chelsea’s performance against Arsenal on Tuesday night.

Chelsea suffered another defeat on Tuesday night, losing to London rivals Arsenal to continue their wretched run of results.

A disastrous first-half performance saw the Blues trail 3-0 by half-time, and while Noni Madueke’s first goal for the club took the egde of the score-line, it didn’t stop Frank Lampard’s men from slipping to another defeat.

It’s now five straight defeats for Chelsea across all competitions, and they haven’t won a game since March 11, with their winless run now at nine games. The run has been so bad that the Blues are yet to reach the 40-point mark, which is usually the ‘magic total’ as far as Premier League survival is concerned.

Of course, Chelsea are extremly unlikely to go down, on 39 points and nine clear of the drop, but performances are a real concern, and pundit Gary Neville, who watched the game on television, summed it up the Blues in a series of tweets through the game.

“Are Chelsea’s players ok? How bad? Probably score now,” he wrote in his first tweet, along with a laughing face. With Arsenal running riot, he then added: “Chelsea are a disgrace out there.”

Arsenal took in a three-goal advantage at the break, leading Neville to say: “I actually fancied Chelsea pre-match with Arsenal having had a difficult couple of weeks! But they’ve played Arsenal back into confidence. Shambles!”

Chelsea pushed on after getting one back, but Arsenal were rarely troubled. Neville concluded: “This games turned into Socceraid.”

That about sums it up for the Blues, who were once again poor from the off. Serious questions are now being asked of Lampard and the appointment of the former midfielder, even if it is only an interim appointment. Five games remain for Chelsea this season, and it will be interesting to see whether they can end their long winless run, starting against an in-form Bournemouth side this weekend.
