What happened when a Chelsea fan ran onto the pitch vs Norwich

For 94 minutes, it looked as Chelsea would progress past Norwich in their third round replay in a fairly unforgettable manner.

Michy Batshuayi’s 55th-minute strike looked to decide the match. Well, that was until Jamal Lewis’ first ever professional goal in the 94th-minute to force the match into extra-time.

And it was during the extra 30 minutes that the tie finally came alive.

Within minutes, Willian was booked for a dive inside the penalty area when replays suggested that it should have been a penalty.

Pedro had previously been booked for a terrible dive in the second-half, and the Spaniard soon picked up a second yellow card for his foul with three minutes remaining of extra-time.

But there was still time for Alvaro Morata to pick up two yellow cards.

The first one was for another alleged dive in the box, while he picked up a second booking for his protests.


Chelsea fans were fuming.

There were just seconds remaining until penalties and referee Graham Scott certainly wasn’t the most liked man inside Stamford Bridge.

In fact, one supporter was so angry with him that he ran onto the pitch to confront him.


Luckily, he was escorted away by a steward before anything serious occurred.

But there was something rather hilarious to come out of this confrontation.

The Chelsea supporter dropped his pack of cigarettes and, as he was being led away by several stewards, Norwich player Timm Klosse handed him back his fags.



Take a look:

Ironically, it was actually Klose that brought down Willian earlier in extra-time and somehow escaped without conceding a penalty.

And even he admitted that he thought Chelsea should have been awarded a spot-kick.

"I think it was a penalty,” Klose said. “I think I caught him if I'm being totally honest.”

Giving back a pitch invader’s cigarettes and admitting he should have conceded a penalty. What a nice man Timm Klose is.
