Ten-man Leicester hold lacklustre Chelsea – but Foxes boss questions red card

Leicester boss Claude Puel said the decision to send off Ben Chilwell at Chelsea was “harsh” as his side drew a match they probably should have won.

The Foxes dominated possession for large periods and created the better chances but had the sting taken out of their display when defender Chilwell was shown two yellow cards in the space of five second-half minutes.

He was shown no mercy by referee Mike Jones in the 68th minute when he brought down Victor Moses, shortly after fouling Willian.

“At the end the feeling is mixed,” said Frenchman Puel. “A good point, against 11 at the end.

“The red card was harsh. The two yellow cards – it is not balanced. It’s difficult to accept, but the point makes it a little bit OK.”
