James Maddison sends hilarious message to Ben Chilwell after his Chelsea display against Luton

Ben Chilwell of Chelsea has received some joking criticism on Instagram from close buddy James Maddison tonight.

On Friday night, Chelsea secured an important first win of the Premier League campaign by defeating Luton Town at home, 3-0.

Nicolas Jackson and Raheem Sterling both scored goals to give the Blues a comfortable victory.

Due to Reece James’ absence, Ben Chilwell assumed the captaincy duties for the home team and continued to play as a wing-back for Mauricio Pochettino’s team, allowing him to advance quite far up the field.

Surprisingly, the 26-year-old did miss a prime opportunity to score himself in the second half.

The English fullback was in position to score after making it into the penalty area, but his effort to slip pass to Sterling was intercepted.

Chilwell made light of his own personal gaffe in an Instagram post that was published right after the game.

The Tottenham star Maddison responded in the comments section with a hilarious statement. The fact that Maddison attacked the Chelsea defender shows how well the former teammates from Leicester get along off the field.

Chilwell wrote on Instagram: “Absolute honour to lead the boys out tonight at the Bridge. Ps. Shooting practise for me tomorrow.”

Maddison replied: “You don’t need to practice shooting bro, you need to practice deciding to shoot.”

Chilwell is typically a reliable choice when it comes to full-backs who can score goals, but a moment of insanity cost him a great opportunity to score against Luton.

Fortunately, it had no effect on the outcome for his team, so he can laugh about it now.

The Chilwell incident was described as “awful” by Jamie Carragher during live commentary on Sky Sports.

 

OTHER NEWS: Deal on the verge £200,000 per week.: Spurs are reportedly close to signing a strong player

The defender is on course to return to north London.

Tottenham Hotspur are close to signing defender Clement Lenglet, with a new report sharing why Barcelona are looking to move the player on once more.

Are Spurs signing Clement Lenglet?

According to Sky Sports reporter Michael Bridge, who thinks Spurs want a new defender and forward, Ange Postecoglou and Daniel Levy may be busy in the last days of the transfer market.

Lenglet has been strongly linked with a move back to north London this summer despite the club having already spent £165 million on eight new players.

Transfer analyst Fabrizio Romano recently stated: “A move is one to watch.” He also added: “A move is one to watch.” Last season, Spurs paid about £115,000 of his £200,000-per-week wage during a loan agreement from Barcelona.

“Clement Lenglet could return to Tottenham. At the moment it’s not concrete or advanced, but in the final days of the window, in case Barcelona can’t find another solution for Lenglet, it could be one to watch.”

A new update indicates that an agreement to return the Frenchman to England might soon be reached.

Despite being officially registered as a La Liga player on Thursday, Lenglet is still reportedly planning to leave the Catalan powerhouses, according to Spanish publication AS. In order to move through with a deal to acquire Joao Cancelo from Manchester City, it is thought that Barcelona must let go of a few players from their roster.

Lenglet’s fate, according to the source, will be in the Premier League and “more specifically Tottenham,” though they don’t specify whether it would be a permanent arrangement or another loan move.

How tall is Clement Lenglet?

Hugo Lloris praised Lenglet, a 6’1″ defender who made 35 appearances for Spurs in all competitions last season, calling him “extremely strong” and a “high level player” after he joined.

He is an advanced defender. It is convenient to play from the back. He can be very strong in one on one situations, has a tremendous left foot, and is strong in the air.

Even though transitioning to the Premier League is never simple and he will need to get used to the intensity of the games, he is an accomplished player with years of experience.

Lenglet had a strong season for Tottenham last year in terms of clearances per 90 and pass completion rate, and the defender even contributed two assists while wearing the club’s colors. Today, though, Lenglet might be about to compete with recently signed Micky van de Ven for a starting position should he return to north London.

After playing for Antonio Conte, he would now work under Postecoglou, and with players like Eric Dier ready for sale in the closing days of the transfer window, there seems to be opportunity for Lenglet to return.

Following recent reports in Spain, a transfer appears to be on the horizon, therefore it will be one to watch out for.
