A poor performance by the Blues Chelsea FC away from home where most of the players, and especially the attacking line, wasn’t in their form and they performed poorly, without being able to score against Cardiff City where the goals came by Chelsea’s defense and midfield.
The first goal by Cardiff came in the first minutes of the second half, and then Chelsea scored the equalizer by their captain, Cesar Azpilicueta, who was in a clear offside position, and then Ruben Loftus Cheek scored the winning goal during the injury time to gift his team a crucial win.
An undeserved win for Chelsea who were so poor today, where the goals came by some individual mistakes from Cardiff City’s defense, and the referee’s mistake to award Chelsea an offside goal.
