Chelsea snatched a late dramatic victory at Cardiff to keep pressure on Champions League qualification

Cardiff 1-2 Chelsea

A late offside goal from Azpilicueta and 91st minute winner from Substitute Ruben Loftus-Cheek earned Chelsea a victory over Cardiff from a trailing position.

Trailing 1-0 to Victor Camarasa‘s volley, Cesar Azpilicueta headed the visitors level despite being in an offside position.

Ruben Loftus-Cheek secured the points in the closing stages with another header.

Earlier, Chelsea’s fans had turned their frustration on Blues boss Maurizio Sarri as the visitors struggled to make an impact.

There were loud chants of ‘we want Sarri out’ from the away end before two goals in seven minutes turned the game on its head.

Chelsea seat 6th place and one point behind 3rd placed Tottenham who are currently playing against Liverpool at Anfield.
