    Every fan thinks the Ref is biased against them lmao.

    Anytime I see black Chelsea fans I have to question their character. They're like Samuel L Jackson in Django.

    Thanks mate, sorry I'm not the best with all the suspensions & how long they miss for what, which comps included etc.

    I honestly thought you couldn't get a red anymore for a penalty foul unless the foul itself is worth a red. Could someone clarify?

    Amazing spirit to get a point with 10 man though.

    Honestly Chelsea are f*cking ****e. If the club hadn't say on their arses for so long with Emery we would have overtaken that lot

    BT Sport picked that up. Something was said about Abtaham basically not interfering with play.

    I know. It must be for standing there whilst injured. A new rule maybe?

    Both Holding and Mustafi were at fault for Chelsea's 2nd, just ballwatching and not doing anything to stop Azpilicueta coming in at the near post. Arteta won't be pleased.
    In the first half I saw Torreira aggressively holding Azplicueta back on corners. Clearly there's man marking tactical instructions being given. Thank **** we ditched Wenger's zonal system.

    Kante’s slip is the sort of luck that we’re been missing. If we’d had that or even competent refs in the past three games we’d be 5th, and a point behind 4th.

    No doubt implemented just before KO.

    Only if the foul is deemed accidental you can get a way with the penalty only. If it´s intentional you get a red and the penalty.
    At least that´s how i think it is.

    I think you can only get a red if it is a dangerously violent tackle or if the player made no genuine attempt to win the ball but instead just took out the opponent. In this case they interpreted Luiz' actions as blatantly taking out Abraham without really trying to win the ball. (Obviously loads of bollocks)

    Go to 1:10. That tackle was judged to be a "genuine" attempt at the ball and so the defender only got a yellow card. I know it's not a PL ref but it's still an elite ref that was selected to even ref the final. Surely standards are consistent across all IFAB refs.

    What is Luiz ment to do in that situation? Just let Abraham have a free shot at an empty net without making even an attempt to stop him? Madness. I could understand if it was a cynical swipe ala Guendouzi later on on Mount but Luiz clearly tries to play the ball for me.
