Chelsea fans slate Cesar Azpilicueta and yearn for Reece James following 4-0 loss

Premiership Picks

It is fair to say that Sunday’s game against Manchester United did not go the way Frank Lampard and Chelsea fans would have liked.

In his first competitive match as Blues boss since returning to the club earlier this summer, Lampard’s team were hammered 4-0. Although the result did not tell the whole story, the scoreline is all that counts at the end of the day, and the Stamford Bridge outfit were on the wrong side of a clear victory.

Some of the club’s players came under heavy criticism for their performances, including club captain Cesar Azpilicueta. The Spanish international did not have his best game in a blue shirt, and was partly culpable for two of the goals.

Therefore, plenty of Chelsea fans believe his time in the starting line-up is coming to an end and are calling for Reece James to replace him once he returns from injury. The 19-year-old impressed with Wigan Athletic last season, and could well play a role in the future of the club moving forward.

Supporters took to Twitter to share their frustration with Azpilicueta, whilst also yearning for James. You can see some of the best comments below.
