EPL It’s embarrassing – Alan Shearer blames four Chelsea players after defeat to Arsenal. Following the Blues’ 1-0 Premier League loss to Arsenal on Sunday, Newcastle veteran Alan Shearer has attacked four Chelsea players: Kai Havertz, Thiago Silva, Edouard Mendy, and Marc Cucurella.
Shearer criticized Chelsea’s players for their terrible defense against Arsenal, calling it humiliating.
He claimed that Havertz over-touched the ball throughout the game, while Cucurella did nothing at all during the corner that resulted in the goal, but Mendy and Silva might have stopped Gabriel from scoring.
After Gabriel Magalhaes scored, Chelsea fell to Arsenal at Stamford Bridge.
On Match of the Day 2, Shearer observed, “From a Chelsea point of view, it’s humiliating.”
“So many players, including [Kai] Havertz and [Thiago] Silva, might have made the clearance. Edouard Mendy, the goalkeeper, is not given a chance. Not even a fantastic ball in, really.
“Look at Xhaka and Cucurella in there. He makes no movement at all. He doesn’t say anything, he just holds Xhaka!
“My man is not going to score,” it reads, but he took that literally!” Micah Richards, a fellow commentator, added.
“He can clear it with just a slight movement to the left! I have absolutely no idea what he was thinking.
“Havertz takes much too many touches when he gets to the area, and Arsenal had an awful lot of ease in getting guys back behind the ball,” he said. They had no chance of scoring today.
