Former Aston Villa captain, Gabriel Agbonlahor has labelled Chelsea as 'anti football' following their loss to Manchester City over the weekend. He also slammed Thomas Tuchel for sitting back and waiting for a draw.
The 34-year-old believes Chelsea did not even give themselves a chance to win the game. "I was watching it and I was thinking this is anti-football, even the Chelsea fans were groaning during the first half calling for someone to get up the pitch to support Werner and Lukaku," Agbonlahor said.
"Honestly Mancity must have been thinking to themselves why do you want to come and sit back and get a point, you are the European champions at least give it a go.
"It was attack vs defence, we used to do it training, that's what it was for the whole first half.
"When they changed it in the second half, Havertz came on and made some runs in behind, they improved. But even the manager has come out and said he got it wrong today".
