EPL: Zola names Chelsea player that’ll lose his position after 4-0 defeat to Man Utd

Man Utd vs Chelsea: Zola predicts where Lampard will finish in EPL this season
Former Chelsea striker, Gianfranco Zola has identified defender, Kurt Zouma as the player that will lose his position at the club following their Premier League 4-0 defeat to Manchester United on Sunday at Old Trafford.

Two goals from Marcus Rashford and a strike from Anthony Martial and Daniel James handed Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side all three points against Frank Lampard’s men.

Zouma, who spent last season on loan at Everton, gave away a penalty in the first half for a an awkward foul on Rashford, who converted his spot-kick to put the Red Devils in front.

But Zola now believes that the France international will lose his place to Antonio Rudiger once the Germany international fully recover from a knee surgery.

According to him, Rudiger will form a suitable partnership with Andreas Christensen at Chelsea’s centre-back.

“Certainly, Zouma will drop to the bench when Rudiger becomes available. Rudiger has got more experience,” Zola told beIN Sports.

“I think he has a better understanding with Christensen. I believe if they want to play out from the back, Rudiger and Christensen will be more suitable.”

Zola added: “I totally think the score was very unfair because they deserved something more.

“There were a lot of positive things going forward and in the build-up but they will have to improve more defensively.”
