“It can happen to anyone,” Ruben Loftus-Cheek told Chelsea’s media team when asked about Cesar Azpilicueta’s mistake that led to Richarlison’s goal.
“I can’t remember in his career when that has happened to him. It’s one of those ones and I am sure he will put it behind him very quickly as we have some big games coming up.
“Azpi is a fantastic player and no one will blame anyone.”
Azpilicueta gave the ball away cheaply to Richarlison near Chelsea’s box, leading to Everton breaking the deadlock.
The Blues could not equalize and ended up losing the game 1-0.
