EPL: Very confusing – Ian Wright slams Graham Potter after Chelsea’s 4-1 defeat to Brighton


Arsenal legend, Ian Wright criticised Chelsea manager, Graham Potter and described his formation against Brighton on Saturday as very confusing.

The former Arsenal striker wants Potter to restore the Blues’ more orthodox full-backs to the starting XI.

Chelsea were beaten 4-1 by Brighton in the Premier League on Saturday with goals from Leandro Trossard, Ruben Loftus-Cheek(own goal), Trevoh Chalobah(own goal) and Pascal Gross.

Kai Havertz pulled a goal back for the visitors and Brighton defended stubbornly to see off the Blues and ended their 9 games unbeaten run under Potter.

Potter played Christian Pulisic and Raheem Sterling as wing-backs. Although the formation worked against RB Salzburg in the Champions League, it backfired on Saturday.

And Wright feels he should reconsider his team selection.

He told Match of the Day, “Well the wing-backs. We’ve seen they’ve used a variety of wing-backs this season and when you look at their bench they’ve got [Cesar] Azpilicueta and Ben Chilwell.

“But they started with Pulisic and Sterling and I found that very confusing.

“They weren’t really helping Chalobah or Cucurella or Thiago Silva. Pulisic isn’t coming back and helping, or Sterling wasn’t coming back and helping.”
