Referee made a mistake for not awarding foul on Chelsea player

The referee seems to have made a mistake in not awarding a red card-worthy foul on Armando Broja during Chelsea vs Brentford.

Chelsea traveled away from home to face Brentford on 20 October which ended in a 0-0 draw. But things could have been different if the referee had awarded a foul on Armando Broja who had a clear sight of the goal.

Brentford’s defender tried to stop Armando Broja who was running free to the goal, as the last man standing, Mee tries to win the ball but trips Broja without winning the ball. Broja gets back on his feet and the referee says to carry on the game.

The referee could have stopped the play for a poor foul but the referee wasn’t forced to do so as Broja quickly stands up. It seems both Brentford and Mee got lucky as it seemed to be a red card which would have impacted the result.

Chelsea vs Brentford : match report

Although the match ended in a 0-0 draw, there were two very good attempts on goal from Chelsea. Kai Havertz shot in the second half was fairly good and was kept out. Carney Chukwuemeka’s attempt at goal in the dying minutes of the game was a harder one to save but unfortunately, it couldn’t end up in the back of the net. Another good performance from Blues was their goalkeeper, Kepa Arrizabalaga who stopped two good headers in the first half.

Graham Potter’s in post-match interview said :

“They had chances, we had chances, we pushed to the end and probably were more likely at the end to score but at the same time, over the course of the game, a point was about right.

“Brentford make it very difficult for you to control. They do what they do really well, use the front two, use set pieces, long throws, long balls into the box that you have to deal with and make it unstable.”

“So not easy but the positives are a clean sheet and a point. That’s four points in two away matches, which is positive and when we did control it, we did it quite well. It’s a point and we have to move on.
