‘Show that you’re bothered’ – Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink singles out three Chelsea flops including Romelu Lukaku after Arsenal defeat

CHELSEA legend Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink has criticised the performance of three players including Romelu Lukaku after their 4-2 defeat to Arsenal.

Hasselbaink slated the Belgian striker who made his first start since February as well as Malang Sarr and Andreas Christensen.

He said on Sky Sports: “For Chelsea today it was a really bad performance.

“Lukaku, he doesn’t do enough. If you want to be the man you’ve got to run around.

“You need to try and show that you’re bothered. You need to want to suffer.

‘He doesn’t run around, he doesn’t go into gaps, he doesn’t demand the ball off his players.

“At least show some passion. There was no passion from Lukaku,

“And Sarr and Christensen can’t make those sorts of mistakes in these kind of matches.”

The duo were given starts as Thiago Silva and Antonio Rudiger missed out.

Both were part of a Chelsea defence that was mistake ridden and punished by a ruthless Arsenal.

After the game match Hasselbaink,50, continued his dismantling of Chelsea’s £97.5 million man who has just five league goals to his name this season.

He said: “Lukaku, you’ve not had the best games show that you are the man and really want it.

“Go and show that desire I didn’t see it. That desire, I didn’t see it.”

“They were well under par but Lukaku, Christensen, Sarr and Alonso were just not good enough for a Chelsea team who should be challenging for the Champions League or Premier League.”

This isn’t the first time Lukaku has been on the receiving end of criticism since he returned to Stamford Bridge.

Earlier this campaign he was slammed by Graeme Souness after the striker said in an interview that he was unhappy at Chelsea and Thomas Tuchel’s style of play.
