Former Chelsea striker and pundit Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink has criticised Chelsea left-back Emerson for Tottenham’s equaliser in the Carabao Cup last night.

Emerson came on for Ben Chilwell with less than a quarter of the game left to play and was at fault for Lamela’s goal which took the game to penalties and Chelsea lost 5-4.

Hasselbaink believes Chilwell would have prevented the goal and put the blame on Emerson’s door.

“So poor a goal to concede,” he said on Sky Sports.

“Emerson has the time to run back and make it a four. Just sprint back! You see the danger and if he sprints back he would intercept the ball.

“Zouma also should have got the ball but it happens time and time again with Chelsea with individual mistakes.

“If Chilwell was there, he would have got back, intercepted the ball and made the clearance.”

Emerson is likely to left out of Chelsea’s starting XI for the next fixture against Crystal Palace in the Premier League this weekend.
