Cesc Fabregas’ excellent performance at the Emirates could’ve been topped off by winning his side a penalty if Mark Clattenburg hadn’t bottled the decision to award the Spanish midfielder a penalty for a body check by Laurent Koscielny.
Where the ex-Arsenal man could’ve made himself a shot on goal, he was knocked to the ground and tumbled under a pretty crude challenge from the French defender and no one seemed to have any idea how it was not awarded as a penalty.
How have we not had a penalty?

Chelsea fans are still believing in the campaign against them, yeah, really!
Somewhere, right now, Mourinho is still complaining about a campaign against Chelsea. Rightly so.

Clattenburg might as well boo Fabregas as well really

Obviously its because everyone hates Chelsea, not just a decision from the ref.
As we know, Chelsea fans and Mark Clattenburg haven’t had the best of relationships, so it didn’t take long for the fans to become frustrated.
So Matic gets booked for actually what Koscielny did on Fabregas in the penalty area, nothing given. Clattenberg at his best @FA

If we don't bottle it, Clattenburg will step up and award arsenal a penalty in the last minute.

The fans will always try to build some sort of conspiracy against them, whether they are joking or not, that decision was pretty shambolic.
Nemanja Matic’s yellow card saw protest from Blues fans, too..
How is Matic's block a yellow but Koscielny's block isn't anything let alone a penalty
