Sinclair blasting message to Tuchel over decision on Lukaku after Chelsea’s defeat to Everton

Former Chelsea defender, Frank Sinclair, has slammed manager Thomas Tuchel’s decision to snub Romelu Lukaku against Everton;

According to Sinclair, it was nonsensical for Tuchel not to feature Lukaku, who has scored many goals in the past, against Everton on Sunday at Goodison Park.

Recall that Lukaku was an unused substitute as Everton defeated Chelsea 1-0, thanks to Richarlison’s only goal of the match.

“Regarding Romelu Lukaku, there’s a massive problem there. For me, with ten minutes to go in a game that you need a goal and you have got a player who has scored so many goals and so many good feelings at this football club, for me it was nonsensical not to bring him on and give him 10 or 15 minutes to try and change the game and get something out of it,” Sinclair told Stadium Astro.

“Especially when you are getting crosses in the box at will really towards the end when you are chasing the game. To leave him on the bench, I was quite surprised with.

“They have obviously put a lot of money into bringing him back to the football club again, but I don’t like the body language. There was one performance, in particular, a few weeks ago that he got a lot of stick about just his overall effort and application in the game. I don’t like that.

“I wouldn’t be surprised to see him go, but I think obviously Chelsea will want to recoup a lot of the money. For him, it would be more suited to go back to the likes of Inter where he enjoyed his football where he scored goals.”

Why Everton defeated Chelsea 1-0 – Lampard reveals secret

Everton manager, Frank Lampard, has explained why his team defeated Chelsea 1-0 in Sunday’s Premier League tie at Goodison Park.

Lampard said Everton defeated Chelsea because his players’ discipline and ethic against Thomas Tuchel’s side were great.

The former England international also said that his players didn’t switch off much against Chelsea, adding that his goalkeeper was brilliant against the visitors.

Richarlison’s only goal of the match gave Lampard’s men all three points against the Blues.

Speaking during his post-match press conference, Lampard said: “It’s about making sure the players were disciplined today because when you play top-level players, they will punish you. We didn’t switch off much today and when we did, we had a brilliant goalkeeper to help us.”

He added, “My only worry before the game is that [the fans’ reaction could mean] we would run for the sake of it. You can’t do that against Chelsea, as they will just play through you. The discipline and work ethic was great. It stemmed from great support and the players delivered.”
