Antonio Rudiger slams Chelsea ‘stupid’ defeat against Leicester City

by -

Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger believes the squad do not deserve to be included in the title race along with Liverpool, Man City and Tottenham after losing against Wolves at the Molineux and Leicester City at home.

“For us in this situation, in the table, it is a disaster” Rudiger told BBC Sport.

“With respect to them, if we cannot win these type of games, we cannot compete. It is simple, these teams know how to fight, they are killers.

“One chance, one goal today. Against Wolves, two chances, two goals. Simple. It’s a lack of mentality, I don’t know. […] Not clinical enough and just stupid.”

Chelsea face Watford in their next Premier League game on Wednesday night. Crystal Palace (at Selhurst Park) and Southampton (at Stamford Bridge) are Maurizio Sarri‘s next opponents.
