Leicester City’s 1-0 triumph in Saturday’s FA Cup last ought to have effectively given Chelsea a lot of inspiration for the previous evening’s “second last” in the Premier League. Yet, at that point a video arose online of Daniel Amartey tossing the Chelsea flag on the ground as though he were The Lonely Island, and that made it individual for some a Chelsea player also.
Thomas Tuchel didn’t utilize that particular occurrence as inspiration, yet conceded after Chelsea’s 2-1 success that “the players were very much aware” and that it gave them a touch of extra “feeling for retribution”.
Antonio Rüdiger was boss among them, apparent in both the fire with which he played on the pitch (scoring an objective, being a block facade, and was that a Zidane pirouette?) and the relish with which he drew closer (some may say actuated) the little sideline fight late on that saw at one point different Chelsea players having a go at Amartey, including Thiago Silva, Mason Mount, Édouard Mendy, and others.
After the game, Rüdiger in his meeting with Chelsea TV had a directive for Amartey too.
That doles out the retribution for the time being, with Chelsea probably having the last snicker with Champions League capability to Leicester’s detriment too (accepting we don’t discard it against Villa and Liverpool additionally win out).
Next season’s games will be additional delicious.
