Alan Shearer doesn’t hold back as he tears into a Chelsea star after the draw with Arsenal

Alan Shearer criticized a Chelsea star after they failed to maintain their two-goal lead against Arsenal on Saturday.

The Blues took the lead with a Cole Palmer penalty, and Mykhailo Mudryk extended their advantage just after the break following a mistake by David Raya.

Arsenal fans at Stamford Bridge made their sentiments known, particularly towards Raya.

However, Chelsea’s inability to hold onto their lead allowed Arsenal to make a comeback in the Premier League match.

Robert Sanchez’s error led to Declan Rice pulling one goal back, and Leandro Trossard equalized six minutes from time, securing an important point for the Gunners.

On Match of the Day, Shearer slammed Sanchez as he was critical of his error that led to Rice’s goal and bemoaned his challenge on Gabriel Jesus.

The Spanish goalkeeper wiped out Jesus but no action was taken as the Newcastle United legend couldn’t believe Arsenal weren’t awarded a penalty and fumed at VAR.

“They should have (a penalty). There’s no doubt about it,” he said.

“Sanchez has just come out and he wipes him out, Jesus. What’s key for me is that he catches him in the head.

Look, he goes right through him here. It’s a terrible challenge.

“How on earth can the VAR not think that’s a penalty and the referee? He is nowhere near the ball.”

Shearer added: “They had to rely on a mistake from Sanchez. I mean, what on earth is he doing there? I haven’t got a clue. Just clear it and get rid of it.”

Arsenal remain unbeaten in the league this season following their late fightback. They have 21 points on the board and sit in second place.

As for Chelsea, they occupy 10th place and have 12 points to their name.
