Despite Chelsea’s sixth straight win, the Spaniard had a rough day at Villa Park.
It did not seem as if the guy the Blues had spent £62 million on in the summer would be comfortable playing center defense.
Yesterday, Steven Gerrard’s Rangers gave the Blues a stern test. The team’s hopes rested on Kepa Arrizabalaga having a career-best game in goal.
Crooks has stated that his countrymen in front of him did not support him and that, as a result, the man may not be talented enough to play for the club.
Assault on Cucurella by Crooks
After going up 1-0 against Aston Villa at Villa Park, he commented, “Chelsea made hard work of it in the first half.” I have no idea why Marc Cucurella is even at the club, much less playing on the Villa Park field.
After selling the player as manager at Brighton, Graham Potter inherited him at Chelsea, but the Spanish defender is not cutting it.

While Thiago Silva is a top-tier defender in his own right, he also has the responsibility of coaching Kalidou Koulibaly and Trevoh Chalobah. The Brazilian is the classiest, most level-headed defender on the Chelsea team.
Cucurella has made a good impression at Stamford Bridge despite yesterday’s disappointing showing.
To play fullback, he is competing fiercely with Ben Chilwell. The fact that the Spanish international can also play in the center, though, should help his cause.
He may not start against Brentford on Wednesday as the Blues try to extend Graham Potter’s unbeaten streak to six games.
