Chelsea vs Norwich City
Chelsea needed penalties to beat Norwich City at Stamford Bridge last night.
The Blues went ahead scoring the first goal of the match with Kennedy crossing the ball to Michy Batshuayi but Norwich managed to equalise in the fourth and final minute of stoppage time.
Extra-time was a lot more interesting as Pedro and Morata were both sent off, reducing the Blues to nine men. Pedro was shown his second yellow card for a challenge on Wes Hoolahan, while Morata was sent-off after diving in the box and then arguing the case with referee Graham Scott.
The game ended in a penalty shootout that saw Chelsea beat them 5-3 with Caballero saving the first penalty from Norwich and Eden Hazard scoring the last penalty securing the win for Chelsea.
VAR – Right or wrong?
Last nights game was action packed but VAR caused controversy. During extra time Pedro and Morata were sent off, before the Blues won on penalties, with both players being shown a yellow card for diving. However Willian’s booking was the most controversial moment of the game.
The controversy came when Timm Klose tackled Willian who fell to the ground. In a VAR replay you can see that Willian was brushed by Klose but we don’t think that Willian should have gone down and that he could have recovered.
Conte said, “Willian should have had penalty for Klose challenge.”
Do you think this was a penalty worthy situation?
Will Andy Carroll move?
There are so many rumours about Andy Carroll joining Chelsea so we’re going to break down what we know so far!
Chelsea’s interest in West Ham striker Andy Carroll has been growing by the day and they have been having open discussions with West Ham United to get Andy Carroll, but have been told they will have to sign him on a permanent contract and and they will not be able to get him on a six month loan. West Ham are currently asking for £20m for a striker they bought for £15m. Chelsea have indicated they would be willing to sign Andy Carroll on a permanent basis.
In recent news Carroll has reportedly told West Ham that he is unable to train due to an ankle injury – yet, scans conducted by the club are said to have shown no problem.
