Owen Hargreaves and Michael Owen slammed Chelsea defender Ben Chilwell for conceding a penalty in Chelsea’s 3-1 victory over Southampton.

According to Hargreaves, it was an awful mistake by the England international.

Hargreaves thinks Chilwell must improve defensively if he wants to get a sustained run in Thomas Tuchel’s team.

“When you make a mistake, you show the manager and he does just like that,” Hargreaves said.

“Defensively he’s still got work to do, that’s why he doesn’t play as much.”

“He’s got a great left foot, it’s a lovely technique. It was an awful mistake for the penalty. But as Owen [Hargreaves] said he’s made up for it, it’s just over the line and that was the clincher,” Michael Owen added.
