Potter concedes red card and penalty had a decisive impact in Milan-Chelsea

By Oliver Fisher -

Chelsea boss Graham Potter has admitted that the game against AC Milan last night was conditioned by the controversial incident 18 minutes in.

In the early exchanges of Milan-Chelsea last night at San Siro Mason Mount entered the area and Fikayo Tomori put a hand on his shoulder, but the English midfielder remained stood up and also managed to shoot, with Tatarusanu saving.

Then came the whistle of the German referee Siebert who punished the Rossoneri defender with a penalty and a red card. From that moment on, the Diavolo were outnumbered and after another bright start they could do little against a top team like Chelsea.

Speaking at his post-match press conference in the media room at San Siro, Potter reflected on his side’s victory that moves them top of the group and conceded that the early decision that went their was key.

“Having a red and a penalty at that moment is an important situation. It is obvious that that incident conditioned Milan in terms of what they wanted to do,” he said (via SempreMilan.it).

“And anyway it wasn’t easy to play here even against ten players, although I think we would have done well even eleven against eleven. The referee has made a decision and we can only accept it.”

  1. Some clubs especially rich EPL clubs got special privileges from UEFA.

    Meanwhile Milan has been gutted for three straight season by poor referee decisions. First was season 20/21 at UEL against MU where the referee disallowed Kessie goal for whatever reason.

    Second was last season against Atletico which many Milan fans and player are still remember it clearly.

    Now UEFA at it again with Chelsea. Awesome 🤬
