Arsenal Legend Blames Potter For Chelsea’s Heavy Defeat At Brighton

Arsenal excellent Ian Wright has mentioned Graham Potter is to blame for Chelsea’s 4-1 defeat at Brighton and Hove Albion on Saturday.

Chelsea went behind right after just five minutes to an early Leandro Trossard strike, whilst own targets from Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Trevoh Chalobah gave the hosts a three-target lead at the break.

German forward Kai Havertz pulled a goal back again soon after the restart but Pascal Gross additional a fourth intention in stoppage time.

Potter decided to proceed with Christian Pulisic and Raheem Sterling at wing-back, which labored effectively versus RB Salzburg in the Champions League, but Wright felt it was a large concern towards Brighton and feels he should really reconsider his group selection.


Wright explained on Match of the Working day: ‘Well the wing-backs. We have viewed they’ve used a selection of wing-backs this season and when you glance at their bench they’ve got [Cesar] Azpilicueta and Ben Chilwell.

“But they begun with Pulisic and Sterling and I discovered that very puzzling.

“And when you observe what they do, and when you appear at the positions they ended up taking up, they weren’t seriously aiding Chalobah or Cucurella or Thiago Silva.

“And what was going on was they [the three centre-backs] ended up having pulled all over the put.

“Chalobah is way much too considerably up, there’s no actual address mainly because Pulisic is not coming back again and aiding, or Sterling wasn’t coming back again and supporting, and Brighton were being [getting in behind] all the time.

“Everything Brighton did, glimpse how much Silva has to appear in, all the way in with Trossard, Cucurella the remaining-sided centre-50 % will come in excess of [to the byline] and then you know there’s a load of house driving.

“On a couple of instances, [Ruben] Loftus-Cheek is the 1 who has had to check out and go in there [to cover at centre-back] to rescue the problem.

“Brighton would go down the center, do the job it out huge, Chalobah will come in and gets overwhelmed pretty quickly, and then bam [ball in behind] every single time. And this is a dilemma for them.

“And like I say, they’ve got entire-backs on the bench that can participate in that placement and give more go over.

“You see Pulisic listed here, there he is, he’s with his gentleman, his man is likely on the outdoors of him now, but Pulisic switches off and they rightly get punished for it.

“The centre-halves experienced a terrible working day currently mainly because they have been dragged all around the place and they had a inadequate game.”
