Chelsea appeal against Courtois red card

Dying minutes of the game at Stamford Bridge, 10-men Chelsea are hanging on to a 2-2 draw when Eden Hazard goes down in apparent pain.


Cech left Chelsea to sign for Arsenal last month but took the headlines for the wrong reason when he dropped a clanger in the opening weekend defeat to West Ham.

“I’m not going to talk about the penalty….I want to react this way so you don’t say it was in Day One”. Yet the opposition manager spent his post0match interview saying how the Blues were the better side and pretending that we had no shots at goal until Thibaut Courtois was sent off.

Garry Monk has pace in abundance up front, and his players looked like they could trouble any defence, based on this performance.

24 hours after Chelsea Ladies defeated Notts County by a solitary goal at Wembley to lift the FA Cup for the first time in their history, the “gents” lost by the same score against their bitter rivals, Arsenil. It is important we have this continuity and I hope we can enjoy more success in the future – for the fans the players and the club.

“Thibaut and Asmir are two fantastic keepers”.

“He did very well and in the second half it was very hard because there was a big distance [between him and his team-mates], we had one player less and it was a great effort, ‘ he said, according to the club’s official website”.

Aside of the red card controversy, Chelsea are now expected to complete the signing of Abdul Rahman Baba from Augsburg.

“Of course there were periods when we had to defend well, but you’d expect that at a place like this against a really good team”.

“I set the team up to be offensive and showcase the talent we have in the squad, and I thought we did that for 90 minutes”.

And they took the lead when Gomis conceded a free-kick on the left-hand angle of the Swansea penalty area following a clumsy challenge on Azpilicueta.

“I wasn’t very happy with my medical staff”, Mourinho, who did not comment on the red card given to his goalkeeper, told Sky Sports.

However, Carneiro has come out in reaction to Mourinho’s words and issued a thank you message to supporters via her Facebook page, with the message reading: “I would like to thank the general public for their overwhelming support”.

“Unfortunately, we did not get the rub of the green today”, Norwich coach Alex Neil said.


“He realises how serious it is at this level and what type of player he can be”, he continued.
