Fans furious as Chelsea’s own goal in the FA Cup match is missed by BBC cameras.


After Chelsea had taken a 2-0 lead over Leicester, Axel Disasi’s foolish goal-scoring attempt gave the Foxes a chance to tie the match.

The Chelsea’s own goal was missed while replays were playing on the BBC, infuriating viewers.

In their FA Cup quarterfinal matchup with Leicester City on Sunday, the Blues jumped out to an early 2-0 lead and nearly extended it to three.

However, Chelsea defender Axel Disasi fired a ball to his keeper Robert Sanchez, beat him, and found the back of his own net as BBC cameras replayed the wasted opportunity.

In an attempt to stop the ball from rolling over the line, the BBC director cut back to the action, but everything that had been building up was missed, which infuriated viewers on social media.

“Another important thing is missed as a result of the obsession with playing back-of-the-pack replays for non-incidents. Disasi disaster, a viewer commented on Twitter/X.

Another person asked: “Can the TV director please resist the urge to show replays whilst the game is still going on?”

A third voiced their opinion, asking TV networks to please refrain from airing endless replays during games. This must irritate me more than anyone else.

The fourth one is this: “Why do broadcasters feel the need to show replays even when the action is obviously back in motion? Pointless.”

And the fifth said; “I have always found it puzzling that during live games, broadcasters do not display replays in a box in the corner of the screen”.

After a sharp breakaway by the Blues, Marc Cucurella gave Chelsea the lead with a close-range goal.

Then, just before the half, Cole Palmer doubled Chelsea’s lead after Raheem Sterling missed a penalty.

After a frenzied moment by Disasi cut the deficit in half, the Foxes turned the tide of the game when Stephy Mavididi tied the score.
