As he’s going to take this penalty and I don’t know if he’s seen the goalkeeper move the way he’s going to hit the ball and panics slightly but he skies it miles over the crossbar. There’s a real lack of confidence in his play at the minute.”



Chelsea struggled to keep consistency throughout all the season but despite being on the brink of being sacked in more than an occasion Antonio...
