John Terry has criticised Antonio Rudiger for his display in Manchester United’s opening goal as Chelsea lost on Monday.

Frank Lampard’s side picked up a 2-0 loss to Manchester United in Monday night- their fifth Stamford Bridge defeat in the league already this season.

Anthony Martial and Harry Maguire scored goals for the Red Devils but Chelsea legend Terry reckons their first goal should have been prevented by Rudiger.

When asked whether the Blues would be disappointed with how they conceded the opening goal, Terry said:

“Got to think disappointed. Two in the box against six is disappointing to start with.

“But I think if you look at Rudiger in the build-up to that, the ball goes wide and he kind of gets sucked out into an area where he’s not really going to affect it. He can pass him on.

“If you could have Rudiger just outside the six-yard box, just to stop that run across, Martial then can’t make that run across and that just allows that second centre-half to go touch-tight and be more aggressive with him.”
