Chelsea brutally mocked by legendary commentator Peter Drury during live coverage of dismal loss at Newcastle
LEGENDARY commentator Peter Drury mercilessly mocked Chelsea during their dismal defeat at Newcastle.
The Blues were beaten 1-0 at St James’ Park on Saturday evening.
Joe Willock grabbed the winner with his sweet strike midway through the second half.
Chelsea managed just five shots in the 90 minutes including just two on target.
The result was Graham Potter’s side’s third Premier League defeat in a row and means they go into the World Cup break winless in their last five – and knocked out of the Carabao Cup.
And Drury could not resist a not-so-subtle dig at the current style of play from the struggling Blues, who spent £259million in the summer transfer window.
Speaking on the live coverage for the world feed, he said: “Graham Potter’s Chelsea are playing a new kind of pressing football – depressing.”
Rival fans on Twitter were loving the cheeky comment from the lovable broadcaster.
One said: “Incredible wordsmith.”
Another wrote: “Peter Drury really is a poet.”

A third added: “Peter Drury the modern-day Shakespeare.”
Pressure is already growing on Potter – and he knows he will need to get it right as soon as possible after the World Cup break.
The former Brighton boss admitted after the loss at Newcastle: “I’m a human being as well.
“I’ve come from Brighton, where everything was pretty much organised over a three-year period.
“Pretty quickly you’re into the washing machine in terms of the games and the turnaround.
“You have to deal with all that’s going on and the amount of matches you play, and then you need a bit of time to reflect – if there is that time.
“There is because of the World Cup break and it would be stupid of me not to use that time to rejuvenate, to recover, to reflect and to improve.”
