“He had quick feet” and “tore apart players”… Jason Cundy liked what the £50 million Chelsea star did against Aston Villa.
This past Friday night in the cup match against Aston Villa, Jason Cundy gave a lot of respect to Raheem Sterling of Chelsea.
Chelsea and Villa couldn’t get past each other tonight in the fourth round of the FA Cup. After 90 minutes, the score was 0-0 at Stamford Bridge. That means they’ll play each other again at Villa Park in the cup for a spot in the fifth round.
By beating Middlesbrough earlier in the week, the Blues made it to the Carabao Cup final. Even though they missed some chances tonight, Mauricio Pochettino’s team may be moving in the right way.
While co-commentating on the cup game this evening, Jason Cundy kept bringing up Chelsea player Raheem Sterling.
He often pointed out the 29-year-old Blues winger as the most exciting player on the pitch, especially in his match against Villa right back Matty Cash.
“Right now, Sterling has Matty Cash toast.” He’s acting silly. Everything that you pass or move gets by him. Sterling to our left is putting on a show. “Matty Cash is having issues,” Cundy said through the Chelsea 5th Stand app at 8:15 p.m. on January 26.
At 8:21 p.m., he added, “Sterling is having a good game.”
At 9:00 p.m., Cundy said, “Sterling’s had a good game without really being devastating.” He seems like the most likely person to do something good for this Chelsea team.
He also said at 9:04 p.m., “He’s got Cash beat all night… Sterling moves so quickly.
Rasheem Sterling vs. Aston Villa
This evening against Aston Villa, Sterling just couldn’t find the right finish, but there are a lot of signs that he’s getting back to his best in recent games.
An English player passed and dribbled the ball in ways that looked very dangerous tonight. His partners didn’t have their shooting boots on again, which was a shame.
We believe that Sterling, the £50 million star of the Daily Mail, should not have been taken off for the last few minutes of the game. In the same way, writer Simon Johnson said on X that Blues forward Noni Madueke didn’t seem happy about being taken out of the game against Villa in the second half.
