The Germany defender was not happy after his team was defeated 2-0 by Everton tonight in the English Premier League.

Chelsea was defeated 2-0 by Everton in tonight’s English Premier League fixture.

And it was a very bad game for the Blues, especially the second half.

For Germany defender Antonio Rudiger, the way his team played was atrocious and “unacceptable.”

“It is like the same game as against Wolverhampton, only we lost,” the German told Sky Sports.

“We played a good first half, the only thing you could say is if you could have scored one or two.”

“We didn’t and it is unacceptable the way we came out and we lost the game in 10 minutes,” he added.

“We were passive and if you are passive against any opponent in this league it is dangerous.”

“At the end of the day we played well in the first half but we didn’t score but the way we approached the second half is unacceptable,” the footballer commented.

“There is frustration. Everyone deals with it differently but it is just unacceptable.”

Chelsea still has eight games left to play in the 2018-2019 Premier League season and is also playing in the UEFA Europa League, where they will face Slavia Prague.

“We still we have eight games to go but we cannot say next week, next week, next week have to do better definitely because this match you are not allowed to lose it,” the footballer concluded.

Rudiger joined Chelsea in 2017, after playing for Stuttgart and Roma. He’s been a constant in the Germany national team after he played on all the youth squads available for the Nationalmannschaft.
