Carragher rips into NBA Chelsea

Jamie Carragher has said that watching the Manchester United versus Chelsea was like watching a basketball match.

The Sky Sports pundit said: “What would worry Lampard the most is that it’s like watching a basketball game.

“The idea of Frank is spot on, it’s the way top sides, top managers want to play.

“People keep talking about them being naive and getting caught on the counter-attack.

“They have got no organisation in possession.

“Every clip I look at there is a 40 square by 40 square of space. They are not organised in an attack.

“It’s too easy to get out, that’s why it becomes a basketball game.”

And he was particularly scathing of Willian, saying: “Willian, who I absolutely love, if Frank could have had another substitute he would have taken him off, he was that bad.”

Carragher said: “Frank wants his full-backs to go forward. Azpilicueta (should be) experienced to know he doesn’t need to go every time. They keep getting counter-attacked every time, leaving spaces, because they’re not organised in attack.

Chelsea have conceded already 7 goals in 3 games under Frank and are yet to win a match this season.
