ESPN reporter James Olley revealed what Chelsea captain Cesar Azpilicueta shouted down from the stands during the Blues’ defeat at the Emirates.

Despite not being on the field of play, that doesn’t mean that Azpilicueta was successful in keeping his cool, as ESPN reporter James Olley revealed on Twitter.
