Chelsea Balls: David Luiz’s Hair To Blame For PSG Horror Show
ANORAK enjoys the marks out of 10 given to footballers by tabloid football experts. It’s a neat filler that offers all the insight of a Stevie Wonders’ binoculars. But you’d at least expect the newspaper men in the good seats to award similar scores to a player.
So. Take the Sun’s points for Chelsea’s David Luiz for his showing in the Blues Champions’ League match against Paris Saint-Germain:
“FLOWING locks exaggerate aimless runs with the ball that often end in losing it — putting his team under pressure. If the cross for PSG’s second goal was going in anyway, he sure helped things along. Booked - 4“
And now the Daily Mirror’s Matin Lipton on the same player:
“Arguably his most influential Blues display. Own goal harsh – 8“
He was the Mirror’s pick of the Chelsea players, with a score matching the best of PSG.
