Wright mocks Azpilicueta after Bellerin's equaliser for Arsenal

Ian Wright mocks Cesar Azpilicueta’s goal celebration by sticking his tongue out while on punditry duty as Arsenal legend revels in Hector Bellerin’s late equaliser against Chelsea

  • Arsenal scored a late goal to draw their game against Chelsea 2-2 on Tuesday 
  • Cesar Azpilicueta had earlier celebrated his goal by sticking his tongue out 
  • Ian Wright, doing punditry work, mocked the Spaniard by doing the same 

Arsenal’s late equaliser against Chelsea was dramatic enough but the manner of it meant there was plenty of opportunity for fun.

And that was definitely the case where former Gunners striker Ian Wright was concerned as he carried out his punditry duties.

Wright was working on Australian channel Optus Sport when Cesar Azpilicueta put Chelsea 2-1 ahead with less than 10 minutes on the clock.

But Hector Bellerin would level the game for Arsenal with a curled shot into the corner

He had to watch on as the Spaniard ran away to celebrate by sticking his tongue out, seemingly having secured three points for Frank Lampard’s side.

But Wright and Arsenal would go on to have the last laugh as less than three minutes later, Hector Bellerin managed to curl a low shot into the corner of the Chelsea net.

The 56-year-old had the perfect response too as he reacted to the right-back’s strike while sat in the studio.

Bellerin earned a 2-2 draw in Tuesday night’s game after opposing captain Azpilicueta thought he had claimed a victory for Chelsea with a neat late finish.

Azpilicueta turned home Callum Hudson-Odoi’s cross with six minutes to play to spark delirium in Stamford Bridge as Frank Lampard’s men took a 2-1 lead.

Jorginho had earlier coolly converted his second penalty in three matches after David Luiz was sent off for hauling down Tammy Abraham just when the Chelsea striker was about to tap into an empty net.

Gabriel Martinelli then pounced on a rare N’Golo Kante error to drag Arsenal level after the break however and both Azpilicueta and Bellerin then bagged to ensure both sides went home with a point.
