Chelsea suffered a surprise 3-1 defeat to Everton at the Goodison Park on Saturday afternoon.

As bad as the defeat was, centre referee Craig Pawson also took a dig at Christian Pulisic late in the game.

The Chelsea winger made a foul throw-in late in the game at Goodison Park and it was so bad that referee Pawson not only ruled and gave a throw-in to Everton, he also said it was the worst throw-in he had ever seen.

Footage of the incident has since gone viral on social media.

Meanwhile, Chelsea skipper Cesar Azpilicueta has urged the team to improve on their mentality ahead of upcoming games.

“The mentality is very important and performing every few days is key to being a top team,” said Azpilicueta.

“We lacked this mentality today to come here and fight, to be at our best against a team that were struggling.

“We were coming from a very good game against Aston Villa but we didn’t show ourselves to be mentally strong enough to cope with this.”
