Following Chelsea’s second goal, a Chelsea star was accused for being weak – walexsports.com
Levi Colwill, a defender for Chelsea, has come under fire from Alan Shearer for his part in Manchester United’s second goal in their Premier League match on Wednesday.
Scott McTominay scored two goals for United just before halftime, but Chelsea was unable to build on their 3-2 victory over Brighton on Sunday.
The hosts had almost twenty-five shots on goal during the match, and the Blues looked worn out and out of ideas as they tried to handle wave after wave of onslaught.
After some shoddy defending by Colwill, who let the midfielder run to get his head on an Alejandro Garnacho cross, McTominay scored his second goal of the game. Rather, the centre back—who was actually playing left defense—went down too easily, and the referee insisted—despite a VAR review—that the goal would stand.
Shearer defended the referee’s choice to waive over Colwill’s protests for a foul and criticised him for going to ground too quickly when discussing the incident on Amazon Prime Sport.
“That’s really weak defending there from Colwill,” he remarked. They both have their arms around each other in that picture, so you can see they were both at it.
“It was never a foul, and it was never going to be enough to be turned over, even though it went to VAR.” That’s where the defence ought to handle it.
“But massive props to McTominay; he out-wanted the defender and got it, which helps them win the game.”
The network pundit Patrice Evra concurred, stating: “The left-back, he went down really softly there.” He was overly tolerant.
“It’s a goal,” Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink, a Chelsea icon, continued. You have to be strong in your box and you have to defend it. No matter your size, height, or diminutiveness, you are unable to misplace a ball at the second post.
