Chelsea fans love trio’s furious reaction on bench during Aston Villa clash after referee sides with visitors

THREE Chelsea stars reacted passionately to a referee decision going against them on Wednesday evening… and fans loved it.

Jorginho, Cesar Azpilicueta and Mateo Kovacic were furious as the referee gave a foul to Aston Villa in the Blues’ League Cup win.

Thomas Tuchel rested several players… but they were still as passionate as ever

In an image shared on social media by SunSport columnist Simon Phillips, the three players are seen reacting to a decision by ref Graham Scott.

Jorginho, Azpilicueta and Kovacic were all rested for the game as Chelsea went on to beat Villa in a penalty shootout at Stamford Bridge.

And fans were loving the trio’s enthusiasm, with one tweeting: “They look like the lads in the Shed End.”

While another wrote: “What part of ‘take the day off’ do these guys not understand? They just can’t relax for one match. Love that.”

And one tweeted: “They’re fans just like us!”

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel rotated his squad for Villa’s trip to Stamford Bridge, with Timo Werner starting and scoring.


Midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek also got the nod and took his chance, putting in a superb display against the West Midlands club.

And Malang Sarr finally made his debut – a YEAR after signing for Chelsea.

Speaking to the club’s website after the match, Tuchel said: “We had many changes, the team had never played in this formation.

“This needs a bit of time on the field, but it was important we don’t expect too much in terms of how we create chances.

“We expected energy and teamwork, and this is what we got out of it. With every minute we got more confident.”
