A young Southampton mascot pranked Cesar Azpilicueta in the tunnel before Saints took on Chelsea at St Mary's on Tuesday..
  • Azpilicueta was offered a handshake
  • But he was tricked by the young Saints fan
  • Blues found themselves losing at half time

WHAT HAPPENED? The Southampton mascot held out his hand to the Chelsea skipper, seemingly in a mark of respect. However, Azpilicueta would end up scorned, with his tormentor pulling his hand away and mocking the Spaniard.

THE BIGGER PICTURE: It's impossible to discern whether the ordeal affected Azpilicueta's performance. All we will say is that Chelsea found themselves 2-1 down at half-time, with goals from Romeo Lavia and Adam Armstrong cancelling out Raheem Sterling's opener.
