Mark Lawrenson labels Chelsea players ‘disgraceful’ after Sunderland win
Mark Lawrenson was not impressed to see Chelsea seal a 3-1 win after Jose Mourinho's sacking
Mark Lawrenson has criticised Chelsea’s player for their attitude after the Blues coasted to a 3-1 win over Sunderland at Stamford Bridge in their first game since Jose Mourinho’s sacking on Thursday.
The Blues raced into a 2-0 lead against the Black Cats thanks to goals from Branislav Ivanovic and Pedro Rodriguez in west London.
Oscar’s penalty made it 3-0 in the second half, before Fabio Borini pulled a goal back for the visitors.
A number of Chelsea players were booed and jeered during the game as newly-appointed interim manager Guus Hiddink watched the game from the stands with Roman Abramovich and Didier Drogba.
And Lawrenson has been left less-than-impressed by the Chelsea squad’s attitude.
Lawrenson told BBC Sport: “That [Chelsea’s] result tells you everything you need to know about footballers. Disgraceful.”
Saturday’s win left Chelsea in 15th place in the Premier League table and 10 points behind leaders Leicester City, who beat the Blues 2-1 in what turned out to be Mourinho’s final game in charge last week.
