Former Chelsea captain John Terry was livid with the performance of referee Anthony Talyor during the Blues’ FA Cup final defeat against Arsenal.
Frank Lampard appeared destined to win the first trophy of his managerial career when Chrisitan Pulisic slotted the favourites into an early lead, but his side failed to build on an encouraging start.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang drew Arsenal level from the penalty spot after he was hauled down in the box by Cesar Azpilicueta but the match turned in the 73rd minute when Taylor awarded Mateo Kovaic a second yellow card following an innocuous looking challenge on Granit Xhaka.
The Arsenal captain had put the Gunners ahead five minutes earlier, capping a fine flowing move by bamboozling Kurt Zouma and dinking the ball over Willy Caballero, but Terry thought Hector Bellerin should have been penalised for a foul on Andreas Christensen. (Metro)
