Chelsea fume over ice cream


Before Liverpool had realised their third place finish on Sunday, leapfrogged Chelsea were losing their cool over ice cream at Aston Villa

A 2-1 defeat might have cost Thomas Tunchel Londoners a place in the top four but were spared that by a late Leicester City collapse against Tottenham Hotspur.

The Daily Mail claim the Blues were left fuming before the game when their team bus was kept waiting outside Villa Park for 15 minutes while stewards who were supposed to clear their way ate ice cream!

The article states: "Chelsea were informed the staff on the gate did not have permission from head of security to allow them entry.

Frustration among manager Thomas Tuchel and his stars grew as time ticked by, with the coach at a standstill.

The situation was not helped when members of the travelling party spotted two stewards blocking the coach and eating ice creams with Flakes and raspberry sauce instead of clearing a path to a parking space.

Eventually, the green light was given and Chelsea were allowed entry after what officials said was a needless wait of around 15 minutes.Initially, they asked for kick-off to be delayed to allow enough time to prepare.

However, with all games starting at the same time for integrity reasons, that was denied.

Instead - and ahead of the kick-off of a 2-1 defeat - Chelsea lodged a complaint with the Premier League.

If they take a dim view of Villa's actions, they will most likely be punished with a fine."
