Chelsea fans were agreeing with Manchester United legend Paul Scholes after he revealed his fears of the two centre-halves for the west London club.
While the former England international believes they are good enough defensively, he questioned Fikayo Tomori and Kurt Zouma’s ability on the ball, talking about how it can send nerves through the team (Premier League via The Mirror).
Can a fit Antonio Rudiger break into this Chelsea side?
Zouma has proved to be a liability at times, having made two errors leading to goals in the English top-flight so far this campaign (via Premier League).
With Antonio Rudiger out injured, Frank Lampard has opted to partner Zouma and Tomori at the heart of defence. Likewise, Andreas Christensen has also had problems with injuries this term.
Fans were in agreement with the former Red Devils man, who commented on the two defenders, as they took to Twitter to react.
Here is a selection of tweets from the west London faithful, with some even calling for the club to re-sign Nathan Ake:

Every time Tomori is on the ball i begin to sweat

Zouma looks very comfortable on the ball tf. Tomori has been a bit shaky tho can’t lie

They do look nervous at times. As I keep saying, Christensen should be starting. Tomori is very talented & has potential to be world class, as does AC & Zouma but Tomori has errors in him, a lot more than the others.His recovery attributes are great & will improve with experience

Its true tho as bad as Luiz was he great on the ball and one of the best ball playing CBs around we need someone like him who has the same characteristics as him that has the defensive abilities too. Christensen is better than all our current CBs on the ball.

Ake with a 40 mil buy back sounds like a good option rn
