John Terry Hits Out At Andreas Christensen After Defender Costs Chelsea A Win: The former Chelsea captain was far from impressed by Christensen
John Terry’s return to Stamford Bridge on Monday infolded exactly as he would have wanted. Assistant coach at Aston Villa, Terry walked away elated from the ground where he had cherished some of the best moments of his career with Chelsea.
Taking on counterpart Frank Lampard, a player with whom he had crafted those alluring memories, Terry was left pleased at the way in which the tie unfolded. Despite going down 1-0 in the first half, Terry saw his team hit back come the second with an Anwar El Ghazi goal seeing Aston Villa restore parity on the night.
That strike was enough to give the visiting team a point from the affair. Andreas Christensen’s role in the goal has been severely scrutinised in the aftermath of the draw with many Chelsea supporters pointing how the centreback let his side down.
Christensen who had gone down after a collision with Jack Grealish refused to get back on his feet despite evidently not being injured. The defender’s refusal to track back left Chelsea short on numbers as Grealish found Matty Cash who eventually whipped in a pinch perfect cross for Anwar El Ghazi.
And its not only Chelsea supporters but John Terry as well who was left far from impressed with Christensen. The previous Chelsea defender was quick to point out how Christensen was at fault for the goal.

Taking to Instagram to talk about his side’s performance, Terry wrote: “Great to be back at the Bridge tonight. Another great performance in the space of 48 hours from the boys @avfcofficial. Rest and recover now for the next game.”
However, one Chelsea supporter was far from impressed as he claimed Grealish had fouled Christensen.
“You’d have been raging at that equaliser John. The sporting side of this game has disappeared,” the fan posted.
Terry was quick to hit back though as he highlighted Christensen’s mistake.
“He should have got up,” Terry wrote back.
