But the match also had its fair share of controversy after the referee decided to award a penalty to Chelsea for what looked like a very soft tackle on Eden Hazard. But what happened while Hazard was about to take the penalty has caused a lot of stir on social media.
While Hazard was stepping up to take the penalty, one fan decided to cheer for the Belgian. It’s just that he decided to show his vocal support while sitting amongst Arsenal fans.

In this video, the fan can be heard shouting “Come on Eden”. The supporter then carries on after Hazard scores by screaming, “Get in there. Yes. Wooo. Come on Chelsea.”
While the Chelsea fan keeps cheering on his team all the Gunners fan turn back and take a glance at him in utter shock.
