Let's face it, it has not been the best of days for the Chelsea Football Club in the recent past. After facing a crushing 6-0 defeat at the hands of Pep Guardiola's Manchester City a couple of weeks ago, the Blues saw another internal drama take the centre stage when goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga decided to openly dishonour his manager Maurizio Sarri during the Carabao Cup final against the Citizens. However, it seems as if the Football Gods had had enough fun with the struggling Chelsea FC and decided to provide them with some sort of reimbursement. In came Tottenham Hotspur Right Wing-Back Kieran Trippier. In an English Premier League match up early this morning, Tottenham Hotspur (EPL Rank 3) went head to head against Chelsea FC (EPL Rank 6) and lost 0-2 to the Blues in spectacular fashion. However, a lot of credit for Chelsea's win must go to the Hotspur defender Trippier who did exactly the opposite of what his job description said he does: defend his side of the goal.

The 28-year-old then decided to pass the ball to his keeper Hugo Lloris (at least that's what we think he wanted to do). Typical defender move, right? However, what Trippier did not realise was the fact that Lloris was running right towards him with the net completely unguarded. His skilful and unbelievably accurate shot thus placed the ball right in the bottom left corner of the goal post. Within microseconds of sending the ball for an own goal, the British footballer had realised what a mess he had created, as his keeper stood still, shaking his head in disbelief. The fiasco brought forward a five-year-old tweet the footballer had put up. “Come on Chelsea,” he had said one year before he had signed with Tottenham in 2015. Hotspur fans and well, fans of football in general were quick to jump on to the glorious internet to roast the unfortunate defender with the best memes they could think of: ð¤£ Kieran Trippier. ð¤¦âï¸ð¤¦âï¸ð¤¦âï¸ #CHETOT pic.twitter.com/R6hLmoaOLD — Sky Bet (@SkyBet) February 27, 2019 Kieran Trippier has always been a Chelsea fan pic.twitter.com/iFAr2bvwr5 — The Futbol Sphere (@TTOFz) February 27, 2019 Trippier has better 1v1 finishing than Morata. #CHETOT pic.twitter.com/eysZBdTvw4 — Naman Khandelwal (@yungnaman) February 27, 2019 Players that need to leave the club this Summer: Trippier Ben Davies Lamela Aurier Dier We can't be a top tier contender having these kind of players. — Patrick Souza (@PatrickRSouza) February 28, 2019 Nobody: Kieran Trippier: pic.twitter.com/MpWUxGI13n — Steven (@SPURSWlN) February 28, 2019 The internet never forgets…but you know that, right?
Chelsea's Antonio Rudiger Involved In A Heated Exchange With A Blues Fan After Man City Drubbing
ADMIN posted a blog entry in FDF Online NewsIn the Premier League title race this season, Manchester City have found a potent challenger in Liverpool who are giving the defending champions a run for their money. Such has been the level of competition between the two Premier League giants that it has made the ongoing season an absolute cracker for the fans. With the tournament nearing a befitting finale, there is no margin for error for City and Liverpool as they chase the top honours. Thus, when the Pep Guardiola side squared off against Chelsea over the weekend, all eyes were on City to keep their title dreams alive. For a team that found themselves chasing Liverpool following their shock loss to Newcastle United earlier, City showed no signs of panic or lacklustre play during their rampaging 6-0 triumph against the Blues at the Etihad. While Sergio Aguero bagged yet another hat-trick of goals, Raheem Sterling scored a brace alongside Illkay Gundogan's strike to cut a sorry figure for Maurizio Sarri's side. © Reuters The Blues conceded four goals in the first 25 minutes and eventually gave away two more by the final whistle to register their worst result since 7-0 drubbing to Nottingham Forest in 1991. It was also their third straight defeat in an away game which further irked the Chelsea faithful. The result undeniably left the visitors red-faced and the travelling fans were clearly not impressed. Owing to their dismal outing, Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger approached the stands where the away fans were seated and apologised for their poor show. But, one fan wasn't ready to accept Rudiger's apology. Rudiger staying to apologise to Chelsea fans.

In reply, Rudiger reportedly yelled back at the fan before exchanging heated comments with him. According to Football.London, Rudiger said: "I've come over to say sorry, stand in front of me if you've something to say". The former Roma defender climbed over the top of the barricade to speak to the fan. He then, asked the steward if he could cross the barricade to go and talk to the fan in person, though he was not allowed to do so. Later, the footballer gave his shirt to a young fan before joining back his teammates on the ground as the majority of the fans gave him applause. Following their loss, Chelsea now find themselves languishing at the sixth spot in the table. With the Champions League qualification on the line, their current position in the league has surely got their fans worried. But, the biggest problem at hand appears to be their manager Sarri who is expected to have a crucial conversation with the club's owner Roman Abramovich to discuss his future.
ADMIN posted a blog entry in FDF Online NewsAhead of their blockbuster tie this weekend, not many would have backed Manchester United to come good against the in-form Chelsea side at the Stamford Bridge. With three losses in eight games this season, Jose Mourinho's United weren't really expected to give the Blues a run for their money. But, contrary to popular perception, the Red Devils nearly pulled off a heist. Beginning the game, United were understandably sitting deep inside their own half with the likes of Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial staying back. And, when Antonio Rudiger fooled Paul Pogba before leaping high and opening the scoring with a brilliant header via a corner in the first half, it seemed that Mourinho's men were once again in for a tough time. Going into the half-time with a 1-0 lead, Chelsea began the second half with the same energy but soon ran into a rejuvenated front line of United. The likes of Romelu Lukaku, Rashford and Martial began exchanging passes before the latter pulled one back in the 55th minute. With Chelsea's dominance challenged, Maurizio Sarri's men pushed the tempo but it was United who eventually got in front in the 73rd minute through Martial's second goal of the game. Reuters Leading for the first time in the much-anticipated clash, United were desperately close to securing three points and a famous win at the Stamford Bridge. But, it wasn't meant to be. With just minutes left on the clock, Ross Barkley netted home Chelsea's late equaliser in the 96th minute (additional time) to snatch a point for his side. If Barkley's fine goal wasn't enough to irk United and their fans, one of Chelsea's backroom staff became one of the biggest talking points of the 2-2 draw after his exuberant touchline celebrations enraged Mourinho and his camp. Marco Ianni, Chelsea's second assistant coach, was seen celebrating Barkley's goal right in front of the United manager.

Irked by Ianni's antics Mourinho was seen chasing him inside the tunnel before the stewards intervened. When asked about the incident, former Chelsea boss Mourinho said: "Oh come on, I can tell you that 97 minutes of the game was so good that you have to focus on that. "I did not get respect back from Chelsea (fans) but that is not my responsibility. What I did here today I will do in Madrid, in Milan, in Porto, the reaction from the fans is not up to me. I am not annoyed with anything. What happened with (Maurizio) Sarri's assistant, Sarri was the first one to come to me and say he will resolve it. The assistant has already come to me and apologised, I told him to forget it. I have made a lot of mistakes in my career," he said.
