Former Chelsea Midfielder Joe Cole has said Chelsea are struggling in games due to their inability to bring new faces in the winter transfer window.
This was coming on the back of Chelsea's 3-0 loss at Stamford bridge to Bayern Munich on Tuesday Night.
"I think knowing this game was on the horizon, Frank would have been desperate to get players through the door,” Cole said on BT Sport.
“You’ve asked [Olivier] Giroud, who’s done brilliant for you at the weekend, he’s not been fit and a 32-year-old striker to come and lead the line against probably one of the best sides in Europe at the moment, it just looked like he ran out of steam towards the end.
“So not recruiting has definitely affected the performance and the team.
“Bayern Munich were sublime from start to finish. We talked about the patterns of play, the passing, they just really drilled Chelsea tonight and it’s a momentous task for them going to Germany.”
