Chelsea News: Graeme Souness blasts officials for costing Cardiff against Chelsea


Graeme Souness has heavily criticised the officials after Chelsea’s Cesar Azpilicueta’s goal against Cardiff was given despite the defender being offside, while Antonio Rudiger only received a yellow card for pulling down Kenneth Zohore   Cardiff were leading 1-0 courtesy of Victor Camarasa’s goal, but Chelsea equalised through Azpilicueta’s controversial effort and then took all three points after Ruben Loftus-Cheek scored the winner late on  Souness expressed his disbelief at how the linesman failed to spot that Azpiliceuta was offside   Speaking on Sky Sports, Souness said: ‘They got Chelsea on a good day. He’ll (Neil Warnock) be extremely angry because it wasn’t a difficult decision to get right ‘It ends up with Willian. The linesman must be looking at that and thinking he’s offside, ‘I’ll keep my eye on him’ He’s clearly offside again.’Souness felt there was no reason for the linesman to make the wrong decision   He said: ‘What else can he be looking at? He’s got a clear view, there’s no bodies between him and Azpilicueta ‘He’s clearly offside before the ball comes in. that is a very easy decision for a linesman to give ’  The defeat could prove costly for Cardiff in their quest to avoid relegation from the Premier League, with Neil Warnock’s side two points adrift of safety, although they do have a game in hand on their closest challengers Burnley Cardiff face Manchester City away on Wednesday before travelling to take on Burnley three days later Meanwhile, the victory could be important in Chelsea’s quest to qualify for the Champions League as they are just one point behind Manchester United, who are in fourth place  The Blues are next in action on Wednesday when they host Brighton.
