The Blues have lost the grand Premier League derby.
And now the English legend has criticized the defensive duo.
Former Chelsea captain John Terry has blamed defender Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen for his side’s loss to Manchester United at the Stamford Bridge on Monday. Rudiger failed to track Anthony Martial for United’s first goal and Terry wasn’t pleased with the German in his post-match analysis.
Terry said on DAZN: “Got to think disappointed. Two in the box against six is disappointing to start with. But I think if you look at Rudiger in the build-up to that, the ball goes wide and he kind of gets sucked out into an area where he’s not really going to affect it. He can pass him on.
Asked if a knock to Christensen impacted him stopping Martial, Terry added: “Quite possibly. Listen it’s good movement, it’s a great ball into the box and a great header.
“But can he more aggressive? Yeah, ideally I’d like to see that from him. Does this [the bloody nose] affect him? Clearly because he goes off and he’s kind of holding it seconds before Wan-Bissaka gets his cross into the box.
“But I was just saying to the lads, they’re ones where you want to get up and not even go off the pitch, just stay on the pitch with a little bit of blood running down your face and get on with it.”
