Alan Shearer has said that he is concerned about Chelsea after their shock defeat against Leicester City.
The Blues lost by 1-0 at Stamford Bridge, with the goal being scored by the Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy.
Former England striker turned pundit Alan Shearer has said that there are a few things which have given him concern about Chelsea after their shock defeat at the hands of Leicester City. The Blues failed to overturn a one-goal lead taken by the Foxes in the 51st minute via Jamie Vardy as the scoreline remained the same till the final whistle.
Shearer said, “Other than [Marcos] Alonso or [Eden] Hazard, there was not too much creativity all afternoon.”
He added, “There wasn’t the reaction you’d expect from them after they went behind. And I thought there was a lack of protection in front of their back four. Leicester deserved to win that game.”
Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri also lamented about the loss to the Foxes. Speaking in the post-match conference, he said, “I think we played very well for 55 minutes. We played very good football. After the goal, the reaction was, for me, a strange reaction. Not in the right direction. Not as a team.”
The Italian gaffer added, “But as 11 different players. So it was really very strange. I think we could have done better in the reaction. We had only to continue to play as in the first part of the match. There was time to score without a reaction as a team shocked, a team in mental confusion.”
