Reports : Chelsea favourite says Chelsea key player is playing so badly he could miss the World Cup

Pat Nevin is generally very positive, especially when it comes to Chelsea, so when he speaks negatively we tend to listen.

He was on co-commentary duty on BBC 5 Live’s coverage of Chelsea’s 4-1 defeat to Brighton yesterday, and even he couldn’t remain universally optimistic after that.

His focus was on Raheem Sterling, who had another poor game out wide. According to Nevin, Sterling’s run is so bad that even his England place could be under threat.

Nevin pointed out that Graham Potter was managing to the get the best out of all of the players at his disposal now – except Sterling. It’s hard to disagree with him on that.


Sterling has been a key player for Gareth Southgate and England for so long that it’s hard to imagine anything too extreme happening on that front.

But Nevin is not a reactionary pundit, and if he really thinks that, we’re inclined to believe him.
