The fallout continues following Chelsea’s narrow victory over West London rivals Fulham at Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea defender, Malo Gusto can perhaps count himself lucky to be on the pitch following his tackle on former blue, Willian.
Fulham midfielder Tom Cairney had plenty to say after the game and putting it lightly, he and the rest of Fulham bench were not impressed at all.
Cairney told the Daily Mail after the game, “He has hit him clean. He has got shin pads but he has hit him high and in modern football you can’t do that. We saw it on the laptop at half-time and all six studs are on his leg.”
The decision was also checked by VAR, Cairney confirmed. “We asked the ref at the time and he said it had gone to VAR to be checked, so we are so confused. I am just really confused, that’s normally a straight red. Maybe you don’t get these things away from home. It is strange.”
Chelsea have been on the wrong end of decisions this season and Fulham were also lucky to end the reverse fixture back in October with eleven players on the pitch. The blues can count themselves lucky at the end of the day.
