Thierry Henry rips into Chelsea right in front of Cesc Fabregas

Thierry Henry Two

Poor Cesc and Chelsea got absolutely destroyed here!

It's almost Christmas and the Premier League holders, Chelsea, are just one point away from the relegation zone - nope, we can't believe it either.

After losing to Bournemouth last weekend, the Blues had the chance to move further away from the bottom of the Premier League table, when they faced Leicester City on Monday evening.

However, things went from bad to worse for Mourinho's side, with the Foxes winning 2-1 and the Chelsea boss claiming that his players had betrayed him, as quoted by BBC.

With Chelsea playing so poorly, plenty of pundits have had a dig at the London side, including Arsenal legend Thierry Henry

The Frenchman did a Q&A on Sky Sports with his former Gunners team-mate, Cesc Fabregas. And much to the Spaniard's horror, Henry really stuck the knife in to his team.

"I think a bad season for Chelsea is finishing fifth, for me," said Henry. "They’ve lost nine games already. I never thought I would have said that. I just don’t get it."

"I always try to defend players to an extent, but I’m sorry, with the quality in that team, however you play, 4-4-2, 4-3-3, 4-5-1, at what point can you not beat Bournemouth, Crystal Palace – no disrespect to any of those teams."

"Yes you can have a go at the boss, but I think you can also have a massive go at the players at the moment. Both of them together are in a situation that I actually don’t know about because I’ve never been in that situation."

"We had a bad season at Arsenal but we managed to finish sixth or fifth. We were always there, never past the 10th position. It’s time for the players to be professional about it. Where is your pride?" he added.

Ouch! Poor Cesc didn't know where to look and you could almost pinpoint the moment when the midfielders heart was broken.

After being dropped by Mourinho, Fabregas will be looking to help turn his team's season around when they take on Sam Allardyce's Sunderland on Saturday at Stamford Bridge.
