Cruel Chelsea fans cheer their own player’s substitution

Marc Cucurella has just been taken off after 70 minutes against West Ham, and there were sarcastic cheers from the travelling Chelsea fans when it was announced he was coming off.

He had a bad game today – and in fact he’s been poor all season.

Graham Potter pointed out last week that there had been issues in the full back’s private life – but even that was part of an admission that he’s been very poor.

Ben Chilwell is on to replace the former Brighton man for the second game in a row, and Chilwell will surely be fit to start one of the two next week. Cucurella should get the other – but unless he turns his performances around his first team chances are surely going to be limited from now on.

We feel for him, and while football fans are always going to be football fans, there’s no need to make him feel worse than he does.


  1. Cucurella is not as bad as we think, he’s ball possession and passing accuracy are on point, but when it comes to his tackles, and speed he needs to improve.
    He hardly regains his ball anytime he loses it.
