Liverpool legend names two Chelsea players without footballing brains

Liverpool legend Steve Nicol has slammed Chelsea’s defence for conceding three goals against West Ham on Wednesday night.

According to Nicol, Chelsea centre-backs Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen lack football brains.

Nicol said: “If you think that you have to go away from home and score three goals to get a point, then clearly the problem is defensively.

“And that’s not something new, as good as they are going forward, and they could’ve scored three or four goals today and if you’re scoring three or four goals away from home you’re not doing too badly.

“Michail Antonio, as big a heart, as a big a physical presence as he is, he doesn’t have the touch to go along with those other things that he has.

“What you do against a guy like him, is you use your football brain, and we saw today that Rudiger and Christensen do not have a football brain.”
