    Finding it hard to blame him, was covering from a Mustafi error and I think there's enough in his tackle to say he did attempt to get the ball.

    Should have perhaps been a little smarter but he would have never been in that position having to make a last ditch tackle had it not been for Mustafi.

    You can't really blame him for trying to challange Abraham. It is just a natural instinct. For the bigger picture it would have been better if he didn't but you can't always weight up the pros and cons in nano seconds. It is the same reason players would stick their arms out to stop a ball if they stationed on the goal line and the ball is flying past them.

    We should really appeal to reduce it to 1 game ban it was professional foul.

    It is a one game ban. We should be appealing for no ban on two counts.

    1. He made a genuine attempt to win the ball
    2. It’s debatable that it was still a clear goal scoring opportunity by the time the foul was actually committed

    Nah let him be suspended, we need to start rebuilding.

    We were better with 10 ****ing men, that says it all.

    Can't belief there are people blaming him, almost everyone tries to make that tackle, mustafi shoulda got the red for being sh it

    Exactly this. If there is even a doubt you don't give him a red.



    This to me looks like Phil Jones knows Hazard is away and there is no chance he can get to the ball, so just takes him down with a desperate tackle. He didn't get send off because it still can be viewed as a genuine attempt.

    Luiz has been great for us last handful of games and is no doubt our best CB yet people are slagging him off.

    He’s been a rock recently. Playing next to an 18 year old winger, and goons like Sok, Holding and Mustafi.

    Going to be a massive miss next game, especially with Mustafi sniffing around.

    If its a one match ban he only misses the cup game and I cant see howe playing his first team with a huge game against villa up after us for them

    Fingers crossed, Wilson back in form now so hopefully he doesnt start vs us. Although him and Howe will be eager to build up some goalscoring form.

    Think howe has always rotated heavily in the cups, cant see that changing when they are fighting relegation tbh

    Anyone who is trying to argue that it wasn't still a clear goal scoring opportunity when the tackle was made is just arguing for partisan reasons.

    Also have to take into account the chance fell to the English Yaya Sanogo

    We must appeal for his red card so that it will be transferred to Mustafi instead.
