Should Chelsea’s Willian have been sent off at Aston Villa for two yellow cards?
Chelsea were forced to play the final 22 minutes at Villa Park with ten men after Willian was sent off for two bookable offences.
Willian was booked on 25 minutes and then on 68 with the second looking rather harsh for getting in the way of Fabian Delph.
It was certainly an unlucky decision for Jose Mourinho who seemed to be deliberating who to bring Andre Schurrle on for and elected for Oscar rather than Willian.
The Brazilian who joined Chelsea last summer, after being close to signing for Spurs, shook his head as he left the pitch and looked rather dejected after referee Chris Foy’s decision.

Crappy decision to send off Willian for that 2nd yellow.

@AndrewOrsatti: Feel bad for Willian. Don't think that was worthy of a second bookable offence.

Chelsea's Willian has been sent off. He'll be out for the Arsenal game.

Not every foul is a yellow card. That on Willian was not.

Nice job deciding to keep Willian on the pitch, Jose. Special, even.

Want Chelsea to lose but that clearly wasn't a red for Willian….Ref deluded….

If Willian got a yellow for that. Then about 13 other players should've been sent off #cfc

also don't care if Willian didn't deserve the Red Card, Chelski always get those calls so it's nice to see it go the other way for once
