Chelsea were beaten 1-0 by Croatian champions Dinamo Zagreb, in what was a very poor performance from Chelsea.

Ex-Chelsea defender Frank Leboeuf has slammed Chelsea’s performance as very poor and claimed that the Blues team played poorly for 80 minutes.

A frustrated Leboeuf said on ESPN: “It was boring for 90 minutes. Actually, it was boring for 80 minutes and then suddenly Chelsea said, ‘wow, we’re running out of time, we better rush now’.

“What happened for the first 80 minutes? What happened in their heads? Is the tactic to make the most passes in the game and not to care about the result?

“I was so upset watching that because for me it’s a waste of time. We know they were going to keep the ball, go left to right, right to left, maybe somehow someone will do something special.

“But football is not like that. Chelsea sign Aubameyang and he has a chance. Because he doesn’t want to be selfish, he doesn’t shoot. Clearly as a striker he needs to shoot. Of course I’m not blaming him for the loss.

“But we’re expecting so much more from the talent on that field.”
