  • MORNING, CHELSEA FANS

    Yesterday was a day to forget.

    Chelsea threw away a lead to lose 2-1 to Arsenal in the FA Cup final at Wembley.

    Christian Pulisic's early strike gave Frank Lampard's side a perfect start but then the wheels started to fall off.

    Cesar Azpilicueta and Pulisic both came off with hamstring injuries before a Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang double broke Blues hearts.

    Mateo Kovacic was harshly sent off for second yellow in the second half that looked extremely soft.

    Ref Anthony Taylor came in for some harsh criticism after the game.

    And Chelsea target Declan Rice even weighed in.

    He wrote on Twitter: “Some of the decisions in this game today…”

    Chelsea fans were a lot more forthright with their anger.

    LDNFootball wrote: “One of the most disgraceful refereeing performances I’ve ever seen from Anthony Taylor today.

    “Kovacic red card is an embarrassingly bad decision – Mount yellow was awful… Shocking.”

    Chelsea boss Frank Lampard was also less than impressed with the ref.

    He fumed after the game: “That is nowhere near [a red card] and it changes the game.

    “I cannot fault the lads effort for pushing but that is never a red card but again coming back to us we did not do enough to win the final.”

    Elsewhere, Conor Gallagher could be the latest British whizkid to head to the Bundesliga.

    The Chelsea midfielder, 20, has been watched by a whole host of German clubs keen to take him on loan next season.

    Schalke head the list of those interested, which also includes Mainz and Bundesliga 2 champions Arminia.

  • “I switched off the phone for four days and enjoyed the time with my family.

    “From that moment, I felt the pressure release.

    “Sometimes you have to take it in the face and stand up again and fight for what you want.

    “I wanted to be successful. To help my team. To help the club. I was not doing that and not because I didn’t want to.

    “Sometimes in life that happens.

    “I spoke and it was a turning point for me, personally, and, as a team, we improved a lot from that moment.”

  • AZPI BETTER

    Cesar Azpilicueta reckons switching off his phone and focusing on family helped turn his season around.

    He told the Daily Mail: ‘I was not playing at my best.

    ”Personally, there was one moment. After the Sheffield United game I couldn’t see myself at my level and I felt really down.

    “I tried to speak honestly in the dressing room. I don’t have a problem holding my hands up.

    “There are times in life when you have to be humble and accept it.

    “That’s the way I felt at the time. It was the international break and I went and spoke to my wife…

  • THE LONG CON
