'Another massive sign': Ian Wright worried by what he saw from £150k-a-week Chelsea player in last game

Ian Wright claims it was a bad sign to see Chelsea captain Cesar Azpilicueta arguing with the crowd after the full-time whistle of Wednesday’s defeat to Arsenal.

Chelsea suffered a 4-2 loss at Stamford Bridge a couple of days ago in a Premier League match against rivals Arsenal.

Afterwards, Blues skipper Azpilicueta was involved in a heated discussion with a member of the club’s fanbase who was stood in the stands.

The £150,000-a-week defender is someone who wears his heart on his sleeve and is a passionate player, so tempers did flare a little after the game. It’s worth pointing out he didn’t overstep the mark, though.

Wright worries that the confrontation is a sign things are simmering at Chelsea.

“You know what’s always another massive sign [things aren’t going well] – when a player is arguing with fans at the end of the game. Never great,” Wright said.

Chelsea need fresh start

Don’t read anything into Azpilicueta’s emotional outburst, which isn’t really worth worrying about.

He’s one of the best characters in the squad that bleeds Chelsea football club, so he’ll be a vital figure during a turbulent time for the group.

Chelsea need to try start fresh for the back end of the season because results have been all over the place lately.

There’s still a top-four finish still to secure in the Premier League, as well as the FA Cup final next month against Liverpool.

Blues manager Thomas Tuchel just has to get his group of players refocused and ready to make one final push this season.

The mood around the entire club is going to be a lot better when the future becomes clearer and a new owner completes a takeover.
