Former Chelsea star Tony Cascarino has been slammed for comparing the Chelsea youngster to Manchester United’s class of ’92.
“Chelsea have got an amazing array of talent,” Cascarino said.
“The [Class of] ’92 at Manchester United, what happened at that football club, Sir Alex Ferguson saw that and went with it. That’s what Frank Lampard is doing at Chelsea.
“It’s going to pay huge dividends because a lot of them will get in the England squad.”
He was countered by Goldstein after that.
“[Chelsea have] beaten, so far this season in the league, Southampton, Brighton, Norwich and Wolves – that’s it,” Goldstein said.
“Let me say that again – Southampton, Brighton, Norwich and Wolves.
“Okay, you can only beat what’s in front of you but for Cas to talk about them in the same breath as the ’92, for everyone to get really excited about it…
“When you’ve come up against big-hitters [Chelsea have] lost. You lost against United 4-0, got hammered in that – 4-0 is a tonking, isn’t it?
“Let me come up with another stat, look at the league table. Chelsea, goals for: 18. Goals conceded: 14.
“I’m going to scroll down the league table now to see the next team to have conceded 14 or more – 17th placed Southampton.
“Even Everton, who are in the bottom three, have conceded less goals. This is Chelsea.
“Tony Cascarino’s comparing Chelsea to the [Class of ’92].”
