Chelsea ensured a win in dramatic fashion against Cardiff City to keep their top-4 hopes alive in the Premier League.
After conceding a goal early in the second half through a superb volley from Victor Camarasa, but Chelsea came back into the game late in the game.
Cesar Azipilicueta gave the visitors the equalizer through a header. Replays showed that the goal was offside, however.
Ruben Loftus-Cheek scored a dramatic winner in the game during the injury-time with a brilliant header, as Cardiff City’s defenders were caught off-guard.

FT: Cardiff 1-2 Chelsea. Camarasa. Azpilicueta, Loftus-Cheek. Trailing with 6mins to go, Chelsea’s support demanding Sarri’s sacking. But two late goals bag the points. Nevertheless, a toxic atmosphere in the away end: including early racist chants. This club is a mess right now.

This officiating could be the difference between Chelsea making top 4 and Cardiff going down. Both massive outcomes but people don’t want VAR because the potential 83 seconds to disallow a blatant offside goal ruins the game. Staggering thinking with all that’s at stake.

Miles offside. The officials here clearly want to keep Sarri in a job. And fair play, so does everyone else… apart from Chelsea fans.

This referee is definitely a Chelsea fan. Azpilicueta’s goal is clearly offside and he just gave Rudiger a yellow card for a clear red card offence. Premier League referees strike once again.

Since that goal was clearly offside, Chelsea should offer Cardiff a replay.
