Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger was accused of resorting to football’s dark arts after his cynical block on Kevin De Bruyne flattened the Manchester City playmaker, forcing him out of the Champions League final in tears. With Chelsea leading 1-0 after one hour of the European club showpiece in Porto, Rudiger blocked the path of De Bruyne as the Belgian attempted to burst past him and collect a pass in the Chelsea half. Both men fell to the floor, although it was De Bruyne who came off worse as his head appeared to connect with Rudiger ’s shoulder.

Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger almost sent the ball out of Stamford Bridge yesterday with a wild long range effort in the Blues victory over Aston Villa. Rudiger ’s attempt occurred in first half stoppage time when the centre-back decided to shoot after the ball fell to him just over the half way line – though the effort would have looked more at home on a rugby pitch than football. The Germany international’s powerful shot saw the ball sail nearly 10 meters over the cross bar and nearly even leave the ground entirely as it ended amongst the back rows of Stamford Bridge’s shed end.

With the scores level at 0-0 in the 49th minute, the 28-year-old received the ball just outside his own penalty area before driving forward.
