Chelsea legend John Terry takes swipe at Antonio Rudiger over Man Utd goal

Chelsea legend John Terry was not happy with Antonio Rudiger for his role in Manchester United’s opener.

The Red Devils left Stamford Bridge with a crucial three points after a 2-0 win.

It is the third time Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has got the better of Frank Lampard this season.

And it puts United three points behind them in fourth as a Champions League spot comes up for grabs.

Anthony Martial scored on the cusp of half-time before Harry Maguire doubled the lead after the break.

However, the opener was preventable after the Frenchman outjumped Andreas Christensen, who was still reeling from a broken nose.

But it was Rudiger who peeved Terry, who insisted he should have prevented Martial from getting a run on his defensive partner.

He told DAZN: “Got to think disappointed [with how Chelsea conceded]. Two in the box against six is disappointing to start with.

“But I think if you look at Rudiger in the build-up to that, the ball goes wide and he kind of gets sucked out into an area where he’s not really going to affect it. He can pass him on.

“If you could have Rudiger just outside the six-yard box, just to stop that run across, Martial then can’t make that run across.

“And that just allows that second centre-half to go touch-tight and be more aggressive with him.”

Lampard was not happy with his side for allowing themselves to concede defeat so easily.

Chelsea had 17 shots, but only one was on target – as opposed to United, who scored from two of their three.

“I don’t like the word concerned,” the Englishman said. “I don’t like losing and the way we are losing games.

“Lots of shots on goal and around goal. It isn’t enough goals from the middle or wide areas.

“It is the Premier League. You have to get a superiority in the game with goals. You leave teams in the game. We had a couple of silly moments.
