Rodrigo vents and shrugs, Kalvin Phillips post-match gesture and Leeds United moments missed
Dani van den Heuvel has not had any real exposure at a senior level for Leeds United as yet, but his shirt was still in demand during the warm-up. The third-choice goalkeeper jogged over to the northwest corner at the end of his drills to hand over the Yorkshire Cancer Research shirt he had been wearing.
A sight for sore eyes
Eleven days earlier, Stuart Dallas had been at Elland Road, writhing in unimaginable agony on the turf after breaking his leg. Surgery and a week-long hospital stay in London would follow.
To then see the Northern Ireland international on his feet, with his leg in a brace and holding crutches, was fantastic and a real boost for his recovery ahead. He was spotted chatting with the medical staff on the touchline before the game.
Sky told where to go
It is not uncommon for the Sky Sports cameras to remain on the pitch until the final moments before kick-off, but they long outstayed their welcome on Wednesday night. The cameramen on the field were less than three feet from Liam Cooper’s face as Anthony Taylor prepared to blow the whistle.
The Leeds captain was gesturing them to get away with some pretty stern words in a show of defiance to the broadcasters we have not seen too often. Even Taylor was eventually having to shepherd them away.
Rodrigo and Jorginho vent
During the break in play while an incident played out in the Chelsea end during the first half, Brazilian-born pair Rodrigo and Jorginho were getting plenty off their chests. Stood in the centre circle, they covered their mouths, but gestured energetically as they put the world to rights.
Rodrigo was especially animated as he let Jorginho in on everything he had on his mind, pointing around the field with a shrug of his shoulders.
Phillips stays late for autographs
Kalvin Phillips was not allowing a poor result get in the way of making a long line of fans happy at Elland Road long after the match had finished. It was approaching 11pm, some 90 minutes after full-time, at Elland Road and Phillips was spotted signing autographs and posing for photographs in the stadium car park.
A large group of supporters had gathered behind the barriers by the players' cars behind the John Charles Stand and despite the manner of the loss and precarious state of the league table, Phillips showed his face and gave them what they wanted.
