Unai Emery claims that the 21-year-old Chelsea player is too strong for his teammates to manage during Chelsea’s 3-1 victory.
The Blues easily defeated Aston Villa 3-1 to advance to the next round of the FA Cup.
Conor Gallagher, Nicolas Jackson, and Enzo Fernandez scored goals with a perfect free kick.
Unai Emery, the coach of Aston Villa, thinks that Chelsea’s strength and greater ball handling skills are the main reasons why his team struggles.
Given that he consistently displays strength on attack for Chelsea during the game, he feels that Noni Madueke is among the players that cause the most misery for his side.
Speaking after the match is Unai Emery:
“We got off to a great start, feeling good even though we didn’t score. We were enthusiastic and motivated.”
“We weren’t being strong when they were getting inside our box, and it was hurting us. They were very clinical when they entered our box with some crosses (Noni Madueke on the left wing). I had the general impression that the clinical approach was different for them.
We were unable to score the second goal since we scored a goal a little bit late. We must acknowledge and evaluate the match. It is difficult to defeat them if you are not being clinical.
Monday night in the Premier League, Chelsea will play Crystal Palace again.
