I thought it was correct simply because it was a professional foul where the defender made no real attempt to win the ball, plus he was the last man and impeding an obvious goal-scoring opportunity?
Agree that you wouldn't often see those given in England though. Kompany's foul on Vardy on Saturday was far more egregious.
I thought the red was really harsh. If the ref is giving a pen, then should make it a point to give a yellow along with it, unless the foul was reckless/violent.
A good performance, though the game was pretty much done and dusted with that decision itself.
Qualification is done, only thing left is topping the group. But for that to happen, we need to WIN against ATM. Roma will get a win against Qarabag, a draw for us will put us on the same number of points, but due to poor H2H, we will be 2nd.
Looks like the Chels is back in London. Plane landed 03:45 GMT at Gatwick, almost an hour ago.
Glad to have the lads back safe after such a long journey and fabulous 4-0 result.
Get some rest mates. Hopefully you got some on the 6 hour flight back.
Need to re-energize for Saturday.
Come on you Chelsea!!
