Graham Potter blames just two Chelsea defenders for Aston Villa loss; Here are the defenders he was not happy with.
Graham Potter have taken his anger about Chelsea loss on just two defenders Marc Cucurella and Koulibaly as they both flopped when Watkins scored an almost free goal.
Watkins netted the opening goal of the game at Stamford Bridge after poor communication between Marc Cucurella and Kalidou Koulibaly.
Things went from bad to worse in the second half for Chelsea as John McGinn added the second of the game as the Blues fell to a disappointing defeat.
When asked about the confusion between his defenders for the first goal, he told Scott Trotter: “It’s football, it’s one action and a bit of a miscommunication and something for me to take responsibility for.”
Potter continued to admit that the players are aware of external pressure and negativity but continue to be committed to Chelsea.
“They’re professionals, they understand what it is,” he said. “They’re honest and we’re fighting together. There’s no complaints.
“I understand when you lose at home that people are going to be angry. Whatever criticism comes I have to accept.”
The defeat saw Chelsea’s four-match unbeaten run come to an abrupt end, with a tough clash against fellow struggles Liverpool to come in mid-week.
