Chelsea’s defence was poor against Tottenham and we conceded twice inside the first 20 minutes of the game before Heung-Min Son scored Tottenham’s third after beating Jorginho and David Luiz as Spurs defeated Chelsea 3-1 at the Wembley Stadium on Saturday.

Luiz’s performance was poor in the game and he been on the receiving end of criticisms from fans and pundits after his poor defending led to three goals from Tottenham.

Luiz appeared to jump out of the way of Harry Kane’s shot for Tottenham’s second goal, and BBC Sport pundit Garth Crooks has slammed the Brazilian for his awful defending in the defeat to Spurs – claiming he has no intention of getting hurt this season.

Crooks blasted Luiz for his act and insisted that Andreas Christensen should be demanding he starts the next league game against Fulham.

Crooks said: “Meanwhile David Luiz – who on his day can be one of the best defenders in the world – is having one of those seasons where he has no intention of getting hurt.

“If Andreas Christensen has anything about him the Danish international will be knocking on Maurizio Sarri’s door demanding he starts the next game instead of the Brazilian.

“If a defender isn’t prepared to get hurt he has no right to be on a football field.”

Crooks also slammed Jorginho who had a bad game and was disappointed with the way Son breezed past him for his goal.

He added: “The way Son breezed past Jorginho to score a goal his performance richly deserved made the Chelsea midfielder look pedestrian.”
