Angry Chelsea fans confront Cesar Azpilicueta after he denied them his shirt after 4-2 defeat to Arsenal

2 min read

Cesar Azpilicueta confronted some Chelsea fans who voiced their dissatisfaction at their side’s 4-2 defeat to Arsenal.

Chelsea were awful at Stamford Bridge against their London rivals their defence was largely exposed.

With no Thiago Silva or Antonio Rudiger at the back, Thomas Tuchel’s side struggled to cope with Arsenal’s young attack.

Eddie Nketiah scored twice with Emile Smith Rowe and Bukayo Saka also getting on the scoresheet.

Azpilicueta had a mixed evening as he scored Chelsea’s second, but gave away a penalty in the final minutes of the game.

The Spaniard was fuming with the decision, clearly not happy that Saka had gone down in the box, but VAR saw nothing wrong with the decision.

After the final whistle, Cesar Azpilicueta then confronted a small section of Chelsea fans and was gesturing angrily towards them.

A number of the fans then asked for his shirt, a request that the defender unsurprisingly ignored.

When asked about the exchange, manager Tuchel said: “I was not part of it, I saw it, but, honestly, I can also understand the fan.

The 32-year-old is a club legend at Chelsea since joining in 2012, playing 468 times and winning nine trophies.

His future remains up in the air, though, and was due to be out of contract in the summer before an automatic one-year extension was triggered due to the number of games he has played.
