Former Chelsea striker, Chris Sutton has opened up about his unsuccessful time at Stamford Bridge. Sutton, who made 28 Premier League appearances for Chelsea during the 1999-00 season told fourfourtwo that he was 'crap' at Chelsea. 

“I’ve had years of trying to get away from my time at Chelsea because I was crap. 

“These things happen, but when you go for big money you’re expected to score goals. People expect a return, and quite rightly so. 

“I lost a bit of confidence. It was the first time in my career that I’d done that. As a striker you can’t hesitate, and you need to be proactive and anticipate. I think I hesitated, and if you do that you’re dead. 

“But I don’t blame anybody else. I liked Gianluca Villa the manager, so I wouldn’t go down that route of blaming styles or systems of play. It was down to me being bang average.” Sutton said

Chris Sutton scored one goal for Chelsea in a full season, and was sold to Celtic for £6m.
