Levi Colwill spotted in furious moment with Chelsea teammate as X-rated message overheard
| Last updated
Levi Colwill was spotted in a furious altercation with one of his Chelsea teammates.
Chelsea’s poor start to the Premier League season continued as Ollie Watkins’ goal saw Aston Villa claim a 1-0 win against the Blues.
Indeed, it is the first time Villa have beaten Chelsea in back-to-back league games in 30 years, while Mauricio Pochettino’s men have made their worst start to a top-flight season after six games since the 1978/79 campaign.
The result sees Chelsea languishing in 14th place, having claimed just five points this season.
And an air of frustration was felt throughout Stamford Bridge on Sunday, from the supporters to the players on the pitch.
For instance, as per Football.London, Colwill was furious at the assistant referee, who had decided to hand Villa a throw-in in the first half.
After the official flagged in Villa’s direction the Chelsea defender moaned, “F*** off”. There was not much time to complain though, as Villa looked to catch Chelsea with a quick throw-in.
Eagle-eyed Blues fans later spotted Colwill appearing to give Thiago Silva a piece of his mind after Watkins fired home from the tightest of angles.
However, some fans on X, the social media platform formally known as Twitter, have noted it was Robert Sánchez being berated by the England Under-21 star after the goalkeeper failed to make the angle tight enough to block Watkins’ effort.
After the game Chelsea boss Pochettino said: "We need to grow up like a team, not only in an individual way. A player like Nicolas [Jackson] is so young and is feeling [into] the Premier League and learning.
"He needs time, and in this type of game, we are competing and want to win. But the players, when they are young, need to learn with experience and make a mistake.
"That is why we feel disappointed because we are paying [for] too many situations like this. Things like this is another small detail and in the end, we are losing the game. We are in a situation we need to change as soon as possible.”
On Gusto's red card, the Argentine added: "It was in front of me but I didn't see and I still didn't see [after the game]. I cannot say it wasn't a red card and then we need to trust referees and VAR. Then we cannot come back on the decision and it's difficult to challenge because I didn't see.
"It is the players' responsibility. We cannot blame the VAR or the referee. In this situation, we need to act differently in a different way.
"I'm not going to blame or say anything against Malo Gusto because sometimes, some situations happen in football. This type of situation affected the game and the team in a negative way."
