Manchester United legend, Rio Ferdinand has blamed Chelsea players following their 3-1 defeat by Tottenham Hotspur in Saturday’s Premier League encounter played at Wembley.
Dele Alli, Harry Kane and Heung-Min Son scored for Spurs before Olivier Giroud headed in a late consolation for the visitors.
Ferdinand questioned the attitude of the Blues players by blaming them for their lackluster performance against the hosts.
He, however, accused Maurizio Sarri’s men for failing to stick to their manager’s game plan.
“Tottenham approached this game as if it was a derby, Chelsea approached it as if it was a testimonial,” Ferdinand told BT Sport.
“Tottenham have this in their locker, it’s not a surprise, what was a surprise was how Sarri’s team played.
“I just think when you come away from home you want to make sure you’re compact and they have done everything but that. In the first half they went against everything that would have been said in the team talk.
“That’s a performance as a player and a manager especially, you’re fearful of off the back of an international football: Lackadaisical, jaded, the air miles are playing a part in it, too.
“It feels like they have not focused on what the job in hand was here today and that was to come here and especially in the first 10, 15 minutes away from home in a massive game like this is to quiet the crowd and to get your foot in the game and they did everything but that.”
Chelsea will now tackle PAOK in thier next fixture on Thursday night in the Europa League
