The Blues had looked on course for victory when Jorginho tucked home a penalty in the 87th minute of the match, after Armando Broja had been pulled down in the box by Scott McTominay.

As the camera panned across the Stamford Bridge pitch at the end of the match, Chelsea midfielder Kovacic could be seen sprinting towards the tunnel having already changed out of his shirt and shorts.

The bizarre sight of the Croatia international sprinting across the pitch almost naked prompted Sky Sports pundit, former Chelsea striker Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink, to joke on commentary: “He looks fit!”

Fans on social media also saw the funny side of Kovacic’s unexpected appearance.

One fan posted on Twitter: “Was it just me who saw Kovacic run off the pitch in only his undies?”

“Kovacic going to a strip club,” joked another.
