Joe Cole, Peter Crouch and Martin Keown have criticised new Chelsea signings Wesley Fofana and Kalidou Koulibaly for Mislav Orsic goal [The Daily Mail]
Zagreb took the lead against the Blues in the Champions League this evening following some questionable defending.
The Croatian has scored 9 goals already this season and he is really on fire. Overall , he has scored 87 goals in 5 seasons for the club.
Orsic netted in the 13th minute after breaking away from Fofana on the counter, following Koulibaly initially losing a header to Bruno Petkovic on the half-way line.
Cole and Crouch, working as pundits on BT Sport, questioned the duo, with Crouch saying he would be ‘angry’ if he was Thomas Tuchel.
