Reece James gives away penalty goal after Tierney dive » Chelsea News

Reece James has just given away a penalty after an opening period which Chelsea have dominated.

There was no need to make the challenge as he did, but it didn’t stop it being a very soft one – so soft we thought VAR might overturn it.

Hopefully we can play as we were in the first 20 minutes, but it’s a body blow for Chelsea after a bright start. Frank Lampard chose to play the injured full back tonight despite his bad knee, and it’s not a decision that’s paying off so far.
