Former Liverpool player Graeme Souness has blasted Chelsea midfielders ahead of their Europa League final clash with London rivals Arsenal in Baku, Azerbaijan.
The Reds legend described Chelsea midfielders as five-a-side players due to their inefficiency over the course of the season.
Graeme Souness talked about Chelsea players in a chat with Goal at an event.
According to him, Chelsea midfielders Ross Barkley, Mateo Kovacic and Jorginho who refer to themselves as attacking players in the Chelsea midfield hardly contribute goals to the team.
Barkley, Kovacic and Jorginho are expected to start in the Chelsea midfield following the respective injuries to N’Golo Kante and Ruben Loftus-Cheek.

Kante is rated 50-50 as a result of a minor knee injury picked up in training at the weekend, while Loftus-Cheek has been ruled out till next season because of an Achilles problem.
Graeme Souness believes that the Arsenal midfielder might overrun their Chelsea counterparts in the media if care is not taken.
The former Blackburn Rovers manager also pointed out that Chelsea are over-reliant on Eden Hazard.
Chelsea will look for inspiration through Eden Hazard who has been in very good form this season after netting 16 goals and also providing 15 assists in the Premier League this season.
