Chelsea succumbed to a humiliating defeat against Tottenham and conceded more than 4 goals in the league for the first time against Jose Mourinho. After the game serious questions were raised about the Chelsea defence, a defence which started off so well in the season finally seems to be going off the rails with Gary Cahill and John Terry having quite a disastrous day for the Blues.
Without making it a knee jerk assessment, it might be time to think about replacements in the Chelsea defence, while Terry, Cahill and Zouma are not the worst defenders in the league, they are not the force that people would expect them to be and with the transfer window open it might be time for Jose to splash the cash once again and sign some players, here we look at 3 defenders who can help Chelsea in the title race.
1. Mats HummelsMats Hummels
Chelsea don’t really need an overhaul of their defence, they just need a couple of heads in the team who can challenge the likes of Cahill and Terry for a starting place and Hummels fits the bill in every term. Hummels has not had the best of seasons for Dortmund but the team itself has not been playing well and there have always been rumours of Hummels moving away from the Bundesliga club as long as they get a good deal for him.
Chelsea have the money to buy the defender and signing him up could be the one step to ensure they fix their central defensive pairing.
