Former striker Gabriel Agbonlahor said that the Belgian striker no longer received quality crosses from the wings.

It can be affirmed that Chelsea’s hopes of winning the Premier League have really been dashed after disappointing results recently. Currently, coach Thomas Tuchel’s army is 12 points behind Manchester City, even though they have played more than one match. Need to know, The Blues have not been able to win any victories after the last 4 outings in the Premier League. 

In the view of Gabriel Agbonlahor, the Blues are currently missing the ‘wings’ of Reece James and Ben Chilwell, two defenders with all-round defensive ability. At the same time, Agbonlahor also commented that Romelu Lukaku was also somewhat depressed because of the lack of crosses from these two stars.

 Lukaku is missing 4 matches in a row.

“When I look at Chelsea, I see how much they miss Reece James and Ben Chilwell.”

“How many goals has Lukaku scored from Chilwell and James crosses ? And Chilwell and James also defended better than Azpilicueta and Marcos Alonso.”

Currently, in fact, Chelsea is also urgently looking for a quality alternative to Chilwell in the left wing. It is expected that they will have to recruit a certain star when the plan to call Emerson Palmieri back from Lyon has almost failed. 

Notably, despite facing difficulties, coach Thomas Tuchel turned down the opportunity to reunite his former student Layvin Kurzawa.
