Former Everton player Tim Cahill has taken aim Chelsea duo Kai Havertz and Hakim Ziyech for breaking the ‘non-negotiables’ of Premier League football.

Speaking to Football Focus, Cahill said: “These are individual errors, it’s not the tactics. It’s a mentality, it’s individuals not focusing for 95 minutes.

“On top of that you see the goals they concede. You see Havertz, he’s trying to do a trick, trying to nutmeg someone and he loses it. Ings is on the front foot, they’re ready, waiting and pounces.

“They’re all little errors and mistakes from individuals. He brings on Ziyech and again dribbling, when to dribble, what areas to dribble, understanding where to do it.

“There’s non-negotiables and they are don’t try and nutmeg someone on the edge of your own area, the other non-negotiable is stop dribbling and taking on 10 players.”
