During Chelsea’s encounter against Manchester United in the Premier League on Wednesday, Alan Shearer has criticized Levi Colwill, a defender for Chelsea, for his contribution to the second goal scored by Manchester United.
In spite of the fact that Chelsea were able to build on their 3-2 victory over Brighton on Sunday, United were unable to capitalize on the two goals scored by Scott McTominay just before halftime.
During the course of the contest, the home team had about twenty-five shots on goal, and the Blues appeared exhausted and out of ideas as they attempted to deal with wave after wave of attack.
As a result of some poor defending on the part of Colwill, who allowed the midfielder to run and get his head on a cross from Alejandro Garnacho, McTominay scored his second goal of the match. It was more that the center back, who was actually playing left defense, fell down too easily, and the referee insisted that the goal would stand despite the fact that the video assistant referee reviewed the situation.
When discussing the event on Amazon Prime Sport, Shearer backed the decision of the referee to waive over Colwill’s protests for a foul and criticized him for going to ground too quickly. Shearer also blamed Colwill for going to ground too quickly.
At that point, he made the observation, “That is really weak defending there from Colwill.” In that picture, both of them are shown with their arms around each other, which demonstrates that they were both engaged in the activity.
“Despite the fact that it was referred to the video assistant referee, it was never a foul, and it was never going to be enough to be turned over.” When it comes to handling it, the defense should be in charge.
On the other hand, McTominay deserves a lot of praise because he out-wanted the defender and grabbed it, which ultimately led to them winning the game.
A network expert named Patrice Evra expressed her agreement with the statement, saying, “The left-back, he went down really softly there.” His tolerance was extraordinary.
In addition, Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink, a legendary player for Chelsea, stated, “It’s a goal.” In order to be successful, you need to be able to protect your box and make it powerful. There is no way that you could possibly lose a ball at the second post, regardless of your stature, height, or diminutiveness.
