Frank Leboeuf blames Chelsea duo

However, Lebouef contends there are three players to blame for the Blues' humiliating loss over the weekend.

According to the former French footballer, the trio of Kai Havertz, Jorginho, and Mason Mount made little effort to help the team.

The ex-Blues centre-back described the trio's performance as 'shameful', accusing them of 'disrespecting' Chelsea supporters.

"Shameful, really shameful," Leboeuf told ESPN FC via Metro UK at half time with Chelsea trailing by three goals.
"I don’t know what Kai Havertz is doing, he’ll be on record for scoring in the Champions League final, but what else?
"Mason, yes, I love him, he’s a guy from the club, but come on, he has to do something.
"I’m not even going to talk about Jorginho. I don’t know what Jorginho is still doing on the field," he added.

Potter responds to Tuchel chants

Earlier, Sports Brief reported Graham Potter has responded to a move by Chelsea supporters to sing former manager Thomas Tuchel's name during their FA Cup clash against Man City.

The Chelsea boss has now declared his intention to win over the support of the Chelsea fanbase despite their disapproval of his appointment.

Speaking after the Man City clash, the former Brighton boss further admitted that he understands the fans' frustration.
