Declan Rice upset by awful referee as Chelsea lose to Arsenal » Chelsea News

Declan Rice was in the Chelsea academy for most of his career as a youth player, and it seems the love runs deep.

Just like Blues fans all round the world, the West Ham midfielder was tuned in watching the FA Cup final, and the frankly embarrassing refereeing performance that went with it.

He was annoyed, just like the rest of us, and took to social media to let the world know.

Some of the decisions in this game today…

Of course he doesn’t actually say anything negative… but nobody is any doubt about what he’s saying.

Anthony Taylor first of all gave Arsenal a soft penalty for a dive, then he sent off Mateo Kovacic for a preposterous second yellow.

Right at the death, Pedro burst to the edge of the box, was taken down and… nothing given.

At that stage it seemed like the jig was up, but it was a bitter pill to swallow either way. At least Declan knows the score.
