‘Put him in the reserves’ Chelsea fans slam one man in first half of Real Madrid clash
Chelsea have singled out one man for criticism during their clash with Real Madrid in the Champions League quarter final first leg.
The Blues are looking to retain their European trophy won in Portugal last campaign, but are already staring at potential defeat as they head into the halfway point of their Champions League tie 2-1 down at Stamford Bridge.
Karim Benzema gave his side the lead with a gorgeous header after being picked out by Vinicius Junior, before netting an equally sumptuous goal just seconds later, Luka Modric this time the provider.
KARIM BENZEMA STOP THAT! 🎯
He had no right to score that! Ridiculous header 💥#UCL pic.twitter.com/jWtW2l1kcZ

Chelsea looked dead and buried, but Kai Havertz handed them a lifeline heading into halftime, nodding a delicious cross past Thibaut Courtois to halve the deficit.
The Blues faithful, however, singled out one man for criticism.
Chelsea fans single out Christensen for criticism
The man in question is Barcelona bound defender Andreas Christensen, who is out of contract at Stamford Bridge in the summer and struggled massively against the pace of Vinicius Junior, and to stay on his feet, in the first half.
And Chelsea fans were quick to turn on the Dane as they found themselves staring down the barrel of Champions League exit just a quarter of the way through the tie.
Barca going to be terminating Christensen’s contract before he’s already begun after this performance

That’s sensational from Benzema. Christensen is getting murdered out there.

I need azpilicueta and Christensen out of this club at half time

Christensen can leave for free now! Although with this type of performance against Madrid I doubt Barca would want him, Shocking!

Christensen and Mason Mount should just go home by halftime.

Christensen shouldn’t play for Chelsea again his heads not in it. Put him in the reserves

Vinicius is absolutely destroying Christensen here and has been since minute one.
