Chelsea defender Kurt Zouma was once again on the losing side for loan club Stoke City as they were beaten 3-0 by Manchester United at Old Trafford on Monday night, and Blues fans were quick to have their say on his latest performance.
The Premier League holders sent the centre-back on a season-long loan to the Britannia Stadium in the summer as they look for him to recapture the form he was showing prior to his serious knee injury at the start of 2016.
However, the 23-year-old has been part of a Potters defence that is currently lying in the relegation zone after conceding 50 goals in 23 top flight matches this term, and the France international perhaps should have done better to prevent the Red Devils’ third goal from Romelu Lukaku on Monday.
Chelsea supporters took to social media to give their thoughts on his Old Trafford display, and while one said “Zouma really isn’t as good as people claim he is”, another said “we need to bring Zouma home, he doesn’t deserve this”.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…

Gone down hill massively. Looks like a championship defender.

Name me a worse defender in the premier league than that donkey Kurt Zouma? The guy is useless at pretty much everything you need to be top quality defender.
