Arsenal legend Ian Wright has blamed one Chelsea player for his role in the heavy defeat suffered at the hands of top-four rivals Manchester United in their Premier League clash at the weekend.

Manchester United hosted Chelsea at Old Trafford on Sunday evening in what was their first Premier League game of the season for the two teams.

Ian Wright spoke about the game while he was on Sky Sports.

According to him, Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham could have done better in the game against Manchester United.

Tammy Abraham was given a start by new Chelsea manager Frank Lampard ahead of Olivier Giroud in his first game on a Premier League dugout.

The Nigerian-born England international striker didn’t repay the faith shown in him by Frank Lampard according to former Arsenal striker Ian Wright.

Tammy Abraham had the chance to give Chelsea the lead when the scoreline was still goalless only for him to hit the post.

The Chelsea Academy graduate hit the post when it was easier to score.

Manchester United went on to take the lead through a Marcus Rashford penalty in the 18th minute after he was brought down by Kurt Zouma in the Chelsea box.

Tammy Abraham was dispossessed by Harry Maguire for the second Manchester United goal scored by Anthony Martial before Rashford and substitute Daniel James scored to make it a comprehensive 4-0 victory for the Red Devils.
