When Chelsea keeper Arrizabalaga pulled off an incredible save to deny Watford No.1 Ben Foster from scoring an amazing diving header to pull his team level and register his first goal for the club in the 97th minute.
Foster could barely hide his disappointment at the miss during a post-match interview, but in a heartwarming act of sportsmanship, the two men shared an emotional embrace as the final whistle blew, each man recognizing the other’s skill and acknowledging the strangeness of the situation.
