Chelsea fans came up with an amusing chant for Zlatan Ibrahimovic after the Paris Saint-Germain striker had a goal ruled out for offside during this evening’s Champions League match at Stamford Bridge.

Zlatan turned the ball into the net from close range but the goal was chalked off after the assistant referee raised his flag.

And, according to AFP reporter Tom Williams, the Chelsea faithful responded with a very funny chant which you can see by scrolling a little further down this page.

"Zlatan Ibrahimovic, your nose is offside!" the Chelsea fans sang at Ibra.

However, the chant would end up backfiring on Chelsea moments later. Zlatan squared the ball for Adrien Rabiot, who put PSG 3-1 up on aggregate.

Uphill battle for Chelsea

This left Chelsea with a massive task to qualify for the Champions League quarter-finals. Guus Hiddink’s men now require three goals to advance, although they pulled one back before half-time through Diego Costa.

Revenge for Zlatan

For Ibrahimovic, his assist has gone some way to exacting revenge over the west London outfit after what happened last season.

The Sweden international was sent off at the Bridge and described Chelsea’s players as “babies” after the match for the way they surrounded the referee.

"I don't know if I have to get angry or start to laugh,” Ibrahimovic was quoted as saying by Sky Sports at the time. “For me when I saw the red card I was like 'the guy doesn't know what he's doing'

"That is not the worst. The worst is when I got the red card all the Chelsea players come around. It felt like I had a lot of babies around me."

Update: Zlatan wins it for PSG

Zlatan had the last laugh, scoring PSG's second goal in their 2-1 win over Chelsea.

The 34-year-old turned in Angel di Maria's cross from close range to ensure PSG will be in the hat for the Champions League quarter-final draw.
