With the battle for a top four finish heating up quite nicely in the final weeks of the season, Chelsea knew that a win against Watford would put them in a commanding position heading into the last match day. Instead, they looked nervous and out of sorts against the Hornets, none more so than defender Andreas Christensen. The Danish international was paired alongside David Luiz at the back but instead of promoting confidence and composure the duo were severely lacking in what was needed to try and stop the likes of Troy Deeney. It was a worrying opening 45 minutes and Christensen will have been left feeling as though he had been ran ragged. He is one player who desperately needs to up his game ahead of the summer, with a number of fans calling for his head on Twitter. If the Blues board feel the same, these could well be the final minutes that the Stamford Bridge faithful see of the centre back.
This is Futbol has gathered a selection of the supporters’ tweets:
And Christensen is proving that he is also dumb. Chelsea needs to cash in on this player, there are hundreds of better defenders in the world.

Christensen is a deer in the headlights every single game

Christensen & Luiz getting bullied early on by Deeney – imagine my shock

I swear if Chelsea don’t sell Christensen off, I’m so done.

Some diabolical defending so far. Lucky to not be behind yet. Alonso and Christensen are shocking. Luiz isn’t much better. We’re gonna struggle against this all game long. Deeney will win everything at this rate.#CFC #CHEWAT

I personally think Christensen needs to go out on loan again to get a full season to get confidence in him, hopefully in the PL.

If we can bin Cahill,Luiz,Alonso,Willian,Christensen ,Giroud and Higuain then it'll be a successful window.
