Chelsea fans call for Christensen over Luiz (again) following Wolves draw

Chelsea’s supporters have flooded to social media this afternoon to call for Andreas Christensen to permanently replace David Luiz in their side’s backline, on the back of the Blues’ 1-1 draw with Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Chelsea vs Wolves

Maurizio Sarri’s men welcomed Wolves to Stamford Bridge a short time ago, for a Premier League clash.

Chelsea headed into proceedings on an improved run of form of late, having picked up 3 straight wins across all competitions.

The Blues, though, still sat in 6th-place in the Premier League table before kick-off this afternoon, a point adrift of Arsenal, and 2 adrift of Manchester United, ahead of the meeting between the sides this evening.

Chelsea stunned

Chelsea’s push to reclaim their place in the English top-flight’s top-4, though, took a major blow over the course of the last 90 minutes at Stamford Bridge.

A largely-underwhelming showing on the part of the capital giants eventually culminated in a 1-1 stalemate.

Raul Jimenez put Wolves in front 10 minutes into the second-half, on the back of a sumptuous exchange with attacking partner Diogo Jota.

Just when it looked as though the visitors were set to escape from London with a smash-and-grab 3 points, though, an injury-time moment of individual brilliance from Eden Hazard saw the Belgian pick out the bottom corner of Rui Patricio’s goal to secure a share of the spoils for Chelsea.

Luiz slammed

In the aftermath of their side’s disappointing performance this afternoon, Chelsea’s supporters have since made their frustrations with a number of the club’s players clear.

The likes of Mateo Kovacic, Jorginho and Emerson failed to impress, amid a disjointed team showing.

However, none of the Blues’ stars have been singled out for heavier criticism than centre-half David Luiz.

In the buildup to Wolves’ opener, the Brazilian’s lack of defensive awareness was laid bare for the umpteenth time this season, as Luiz was simply bypassed on the halfway-line, leaving defensive partner Antonio Rudiger in an unenviable position:

And the experienced stopper’s latest slip-up has since seen fans of Chelsea flood to Twitter to call for Andreas Christensen to replace Luiz in their side’s backline moving forward:
