Redknapp: Villas-Boas gaffed hooking Chelsea's Sturridge

Former Tottenham star Jamie Redknapp feels Andre Villas-Boas gaffed taking off Danny Sturridge as Manchester United fought back to draw 3-3 at Chelsea.

Redknapp wrote in the Daily Mail: "Two huge moments at 3-2 to Chelsea: a miss by Fernando Torres and the odd decision by Andre Villas-Boas to sub Daniel Sturridge. Patrice Evra, who had been booked and was being tormented by Sturridge, must have felt like throwing a street party.

It also sent out a negative message to the rest of the Chelsea players that they should defend and close out the match. Would Fergie have made the same mistake? No. "
