FA CUP: Wigan dump Bournemouth out, nine-man Chelsea scrape through

FA CUP: Wigan dump Bournemouth out, nine-man Chelsea scrape through

Chelsea's stand-in goalkeeper Willy Caballero ws the hero of the penalty shootout in the FA Cup third round replay win against Norwich City.

Reduced to nine men against eleven, Chelsea survived Norwich scare to advance to the fourth round of the English FA Cup after beating the Championship side on penalties at Stamford Bridge.

On BBC One, Alan Shearer called Willian's yellow card a "shocking decision" and the failure of the video assistant to correct it a "shambles".

Chelsea had three players booked for diving during the match and five yellow cards with Pedro and Morata's red cards meaning that they will miss the upcoming Premier League game against Brighton on Saturday.

Compatriot Morata was also given a second yellow card soon afterwards for diving in the Norwich area and protesting the decision.

However, the Brazilian was clearly clipped but video official Mike Jones somehow didn't view the the decision to be a big enough error to review the incident at length, leaving Graham Scott's booking to stand.

He added: "Sometimes you get doubt in your mind and you'd like an opportunity for that to be checked. I want to play as many games as possible and keep winning games". Now it turns out a clear penalty was turned down, even with a video ref!

VAR has already been used in the 3rd round, notably when Leicester's Kelechi Iheanacho's became the first goalscorer to benefit from the system.

The Italian manager was not pleased after the system ruled against the team's favour during Willian's penalty appeal. If you don't see this when you're watching TV, maybe when you're on the pitch it would be impossible to see this type of situation. When you see this, you have to call the referee. "Today in this game there is a very clear situation with Willian".

Morata missed yet another shot from inside six yards with a weak header before Pedro received a second booking for a unsafe foul on Wes Hoolihan; justice after that appalling dive in the first half. But 67 seconds later after the referee sent the decision for review it was correctly awarded.

Antonio Conte brought on striker Alvaro Morata and centre-back Andreas Christensen for Batshuayi and Ampadu with 10 minutes left on the clock. You must pay great attention at this moment of the game to stay calm and to make the best decision.

Batshuayi did show good awareness to get ahead of his man and onto the end of Kenedy's 55th-minute cross to give Chelsea the lead, becoming just the third player to score in four different competitions for a Premier League club this season - after Sergio Aguero and Romelu Lukaku.

"Otherwise we cut the power to the referee on the pitch, and that is not right".
