Tottenham fans troll Chelsea as Pedro gets rub of green to open scoring v Newcastle

By | 12th January 2019

MAURIZIO SARRI was trolled by Tottenham fans on social media after Chelsea opened the scoring against Newcastle – despite Pedro appearing to be offside.

The Blues boss fumed earlier on in the week after his side were on the end of VAR controversy against Spurs at Wembley in their Carabao Cup semi-final first leg.

Sarri was left raging after the referee overturned an offside decision against Harry Kane, who would go on to win a penalty, before converting the spot-kick in the only goal of the game.

The Italian then got out a laptop which showed the England international appearing to be offside as he failed to contain his disappointment.

And Spurs supporters have took to Twitter to mock the ex-Napoli gaffer after Pedro broke the deadlock at Stamford Bridge.

David Luiz sent the Spaniard through on goal with a glorious pass, although replays showed his foot may have been offside.

Uploading a picture of Sarri with a laptop, one fan said: “That Pedro goal looked offside to me….”

While another – showing that Pedro was beyond the last defender – commented: “Well Sari (sic) if you want to get your laptop out again and draw a line with your crayon, then Pedro is offside.”

Another simply stated: “I think you will find that when Sarri looks at the Newcastle cam Pedro was offside.”

Pedro’s opener was cancelled out by Ciaran Clark’s excellent header just before the break as both teams went in level at half-time.
