Cesar Azpilicueta Confronts Chelsea Fans Following 4-2 Defeat To Arsenal, He Was Fuming

Chelsea captain César Azpilicueta was involved in an angry exchange with his own fans following the club's 4-2 defeat to Arsenal on Wednesday night – and footage from the stands has since emerged online.

Minutes after the final whistle, the Spanish defender was walking towards Stamford Bridge's West Stand when he spotted one supporter who appeared to be making a gesture towards the full-back.

Azpilicueta, with his arms outstretched, then walked over to the fan to confront him. You can see footage of the incident below.

In terms of the result, top-four hopefuls Arsenal produced one of their best performances of the season in an action-packed clash at Stamford Bridge.

Mikel Arteta gave Eddie Nketiah a chance to prove himself in Wednesday's clash and the 22-year-old repaid that faith when he seized on an awful pass from Andreas Christensen to slot past Edouard Mendy.

Thomas Tuchel's side issued an instant response when Timo Werner's deflected strike beat Aaron Ramsdale, but the defiant visitors took the lead again through England international Emile Smith Rowe. What a goal it was, by the way.

Chelsea captain Cesar Azpilicueta then managed to get his toe on the end of a Mason Mount cross to make it 2-2 before the half-time break.

Mikel Arteta's side certainly turned up in the second period as Nketiah scored his second before Bukayo Saka converted a 91st minute penalty to seal all three points.

It was arguably one of the most entertaining games of the Premier League campaign.
