Rio Ferdinand names Chelsea star that caused 3-2 loss to West Ham



Former Manchester United defender, Rio Ferdinand, has blamed Chelsea goalkeeper Edouard Mendy for the Blues defeat to West Ham on Saturday..

According to Ferdinand, the Senegalese was guilty of trying to play ‘perfect football’ after his error in the defeat.

Mendy failed to clear a poor pass from midfielder, Jorginho, conceding a penalty in the process after West Ham’s Jarrod Bowen put him under pressure.

The Hammers went onto seal a 3-2 win at the London Stadium with Arthur Masuaku’s freak goal three minutes from time sealing the win.

Asked whether blame lies with Jorginho or Mendy, Ferdinand told BT Sport, “Mostly with the goalkeeper, he has plenty of opportunity to clear this.

“Jorginho leaves the short pass, yes it is short but the goalkeeper gets there. Clear it straight away.

“He gets another chance to clear it and takes another touch then all of a sudden its panic stations and he gives away a penalty.

“Instead of taking that touch, give a throw in away. The problem is he has been caught trying to play perfect football. In those situations, it’s not about that.”
