Simon Kerr, 53, a self-described ‘die-hard’ fan said to The Sun: “I know I wasn’t aggressive or abusive – and you can ask the three people I was standing next to in the crowd and the stewards who were there.

“But I wanted to ask him, as captain, why there hadn’t been any passion or fight in the team – what you’d expect from a Chelsea team in a big game like Arsenal. He was a bit aggressive to me and then told me I should get my boots on and play instead – and I said that I’d love to.

The moment had done the rounds on Sky Sports’ Twitter account as a clip and reaction has been mixed.

One wrote: “Why did he react like this? Doesn’t even look like the fans were being abusive or harsh.” A second stated: “If ever there was a jay from inbetweeners moment, clearly was giving it some during the game then after the game “I’m sorry I’m sorry I’m sorry”.

A third stated: “Azpi plays for the badge. He always plays for the club. I might be angry but I’ll never trash Azpi down for a team loss. It’s equally the defence being bad but Azpi is a born leader & has led us to wins. Never forget the contributions of this man. Love you @CesarAzp.”

A last one said: “Said it from the start. The guy is an awful bloke on the pitch. cries about everything.”
