Opinion: Five players who should hang their heads in shame after Chelsea defeat

Tottenham Hotspur were dismal against Chelsea yesterday evening in North London, handing the Blues a simple 2-0 win.

Few players will escape criticism, but let’s take a look at the five worst who should hang their heads in shame.

Heung-min Son 

I can’t say I think that Spurs were finding a way back into that game, but Son wiped any chance of that away with his silly red. This isn’t the first time we have seen this from the winger either. The kick out was pretty tame, but still a red by the letter of the law and Son should be apologising to the fans for such a stupid action.

Eric Dier 

Did absolutely nothing. Failed to shield the back line, his passing was woeful, he barely made a challenge, and he was subbed at half time for a reason. When will Jose give up on him?

Dele Alli 

Didn’t seem to be playing his normal position and just got lost among the Chelsea bodies. Couldn’t find space and was poor on the ball the few times he did get it. The most lively we saw him was in a scrap where he looked as if he might do something silly and see red.

Harry Kane 

Barely in the game all evening, and missed his one golden chance from a Sissoko assist. His touch was way off today, failed to compete much in the air, and didn’t have any meaningful shots.

Paulo Gazzaniga 

What on earth was he doing? Seemingly had to come out and catch or punch the ball, but tried to kick it, missed, and gave away a penalty at a hugely vital point of the match. Just as he was starting to play consistently well in a Spurs shirt too.
