Former Manchester City and Chelsea forward, Shaun Wright-Philips has named the very player that caused the Blues so much problems and ripped open their defence in their 1-0 defeat against Manchester City on Thursday night.
Manchester defeated the Blues with a single goal to close the gap between them and Arsenal from eight to five points.
Mahrez came off the bench to score Manchester City’s winning goal on the night, but Wright-Phillips believes that the credit should go to young midfielder, Rico Luis who was also introduced in the second-half.
“I think that the two changes Pep made were fantastic. I think [bringing in] Rico Luis in the midfield was a perfect change,” he said on Premier League Productions
“I felt like Chelsea got deeper and deeper because they didn’t know how to pick him up and he played a key role in the goal to win the game.
“That’s exactly what you want from your attackers when you bring them off the bench. They were fantastic when they came on, one assisting and another scoring.
“Today’s win [at Stamford Bridge] was a massive one. It obviously put the pressure back on Arsenal and closed the gap to five points.”
