"Depressing football, a new kind of football." - During Chelsea's defeat to Newcastle United, renowned analyst Peter Drury makes a crude jab at Graham Potter's team.

Renowned commentator Peter Drury took a couple of shots at Chelsea during their Premier League encounter against Newcastle United.

The Blues visited St. James’ Park on Saturday (November 12) for their final fixture before the 2022 FIFA World Cup. They stuttered to a 1-0 defeat in a largely insipid and uninspiring display, with the Magpies emerging from the contest as deserved winners.

Drury, who has voiced iconic moments such as the opening goal of the 2010 FIFA World Cup, was on commentary duty for the game. He reportedly aimed a brutal dig at the visitors and their manager Graham Potter, saying (as quoted by SPORTbible on Twitter):

"Graham Potter's Chelsea is playing a new kind of pressing football, called 'Depressing.'"

The result at Newcastle marked the Blues’ fourth defeat in five matches across all competitions. Having begun Potter’s reign with a nine-match unbeaten run, they seem to be entering the World Cup-induced break with no momentum.

he London giants will likely be glad with the timing of the break as they get more than a month off to arrest their recent slide.

Chelsea, meanwhile, are set to enter the break in eighth place with just 21 points from 14 games. They have already lost five times this term, having suffered only six defeats in the whole of last season.

More worryingly, the Blues are eight points adrift of fourth-placed Tottenham Hotspur, who beat Leeds United 4-3 earlier on Saturday.
