ENGLISH PREMIER LEAGUE: Crooks slams Chelsea star for ‘pathetic’ display

Former Manchester United attacker Garth Crooks has slammed Chelsea’s Reece James for his ‘pathetic and unnecessary’ booking during the Blues’ Premier League 4-1 defeat to Newcastle United over the weekend...READ THE FULL STORY HERE▶

Crooks was not happy with James’ display for Chelsea against Newcastle at St. James’ Park.

Chelsea finished the game with only 10 players after James was sent off in the 73rd minute after receiving a second yellow card.

Crooks has now hit out at the England international for his two unnecessary bookings leading to the sending-off.

“I don’t think I have seen anything quite like it: Reece James sent off for two of the most pathetic and unnecessary bookings you will ever see,” Crooks told BBC Sport.

He added: “Thiago Silva playing as though his head was somewhere else and Chelsea sent packing, having had four goals put past them.”

James first received a yellow card for kicking out the ball early in the second half.

The defender then received a second yellow for dragging down Anthony Gordon in the 73rd minute.

His red card means that he will not be available for Chelsea’s next Premier League clash against Brighton on Sunday.
