(Pictures) Chelsea lunger David Luiz deserved red card for this ugly tackle on Man United’s Marouane Fellaini

As first halves go, that 45 minutes was pretty perfect for Chelsea, who lead Manchester United 2-0 at the interval thanks to goals from Pedro and Gary Cahill.

However, Chelsea’s half was almost spoiled on 40 minutes when David Luiz seemingly tried to kneecap curly-haired rival Marouane Fellaini with an ugly tackle that deserved a red card.
