CHELSEA star Kai Havertz has been slammed for his âlazyâ effort in stopping Arsenalâs winner at Stamford Bridge.
Mikel Artetaâs side returned to top spot in the Premier League with a 1-0 victory over the Blues on Sunday.
And afterwards it was forward Havertz who came in for fierce criticism as he was accused of not doing enough defensively to prevent it.
âHe swings a lazy leg at that.â
Ex-Chelsea ace and recently axed Bournemouth manager Scott Parker also added: âYouâre always massively disappointed when you concede from a set-piece.
âArsenal are certainly good at scoring set-piece goals and thatâs something we prepped for [before Fulhamâs 2-1 defeat at the Emirates in August].”
Up the other end, Chelsea were only able to muster one shot on target throughout the game.
They now sit five points off the top four having lost a second-successive top-flight match.
Boss Graham Potter did admit afterwards that his team were struggling to create chances but he was also quick to praise Arsenal.
He said: âThere are two teams on the pitch and I think Arsenal defend well, press well, and make it difficult for you to create chances.
âThatâs what the top teams do and Arsenal are a top team at the moment.
âI donât like to say that but itâs probably the reality. When that is the case, we need to do better in terms of how we create chances because otherwise youâre zooming in on individuals and itâs a team issue.â
