That is despite there being no kit-clash at Wembley and Thomas Tuchel’s side actually being the “home” side.
One tweeted: “Why are Chelsea in yellow though?” Despite the fuming and confused fans, Blues boss Tuchel was not fazed by the switch up. Tuchel told ITV: “We will win in yellow today. [Could win in Blue], but we will win in yellow.” But Chelsea opted against wearing their traditional blue strip and played in their second kit – leaving fans bemused.
Chelsea fans will remember Frank Lampard scoring the winning goal against Everton in the FA Cup final in 2009 in their yellow away strip. Chelsea have lost their last two FA Cup finals wearing blue and want to avoid a historic third. One added: “Chelsea wearing yellow and for that reason alone I hope they get absolutely battered.” Another wrote: “Chelsea playing in yellow against a team playing in red is SO wrong why not play in their blue kit?”
