Damning Video Of Wrong Decisions Given Against Chelsea In Cup Finals Over The Last Five Years Gets Longer

A damning video of refereeing decisions going against Chelsea in cup finals over the last five years has gone viral after defeat to Liverpool in the Carabao Cup.

The Blues slipped to a 11-10 penalty shootout defeat at Wembley after a goalless 120 minutes and it's the club's fifth domestic final defeat at the national stadium in a row.

@HazardFlicks has picked out key incidents in every game to prove Chelsea were screwed over in one way or another.

Some of these date back to the 2017 FA Cup final against Arsenal when Alexis Sanchez got away with handball.

The Chile superstar appeared to handle the ball after N'Golo Kante's clearance and it put him in a perfect position to fire past Thibaut Courtois.

Next up is the 2019 Carabao Cup final against Manchester City and Eden Hazard looked ready to hit on the counter.

He was flagged offside before getting a shot away and it saw Pat Nevin on commentary vent: "Play on, just play on. You never know with VAR. I can't believe he's stopped!"

Mateo Kovacic's dismissal in the 2020 FA Cup final swung the game even further in Arsenal's favour, with Chelsea already chasing a 1-0 deficit.

Chelsea would be in the following year's FA Cup final and lose 1-0 to Leicester City after Youri Tielemans' absolute banger.

However, the video believes Luke Thomas blocked Reece James' clearance with his arm in the build-up and it's another example of Chelsea being done over.

That brings us to Sunday evening where there were a couple of issues raised.

Romelu Lukaku was judged to be offside in extra time after giving Chelsea the lead, but it's been argued the lines drawn by VAR were 'conspicuous.'

Naby Keita escaped punishment for his tackle on Trevoh Chalobah in the first half despite Chalobah needing stitches after the game.

The 22-year-old took to Twitter after the game and said: "Had to get stitches because of this. Referee is right there I don’t get it??"

VAR did check the challenge but decided it wasn't worth revisiting for a red card.

Sky Sports' pundits Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink and Jamie Redknapp both agreed Keita got lucky post-match.

Chelsea's last win at Wembley in a domestic cup final was against Manchester United in 2018.
