Micah Richards, an ex-Manchester City defender, had this to say about Chelsea manager Graham Potter’s tactics after their 2-0 loss to Aston Villa in the Premier League this weekend.
Richards explained why former Brighton manager Graham Potter kept January signing Benoit Badiashile on the bench for the entire game without allowing him to play.

The west Londoners were defeated at Stamford Bridge thanks to goals from Ollie Watkins and John McGinn.

“If I’m being completely honest, I believe Graham Potter needs to do more tactically.”
“We saw Reece James in a back-three, and Ruben Loftus-Cheek at right wing-back.”
“Benoit Badiashile was on the bench, and Inter Milan has Romelu Lukaku.” The entire situation must be resolved as soon as possible.”
