(Watch) Chelsea winger Willian wrongly booked for dive by referee as Blues search for opener against Arsenal

Chelsea and Brazil winger Willian was wrongly booked for a dive in the Blues’ Community Shield match against London rivals Arsenal, as Antonio Conte’s side search for an opener.

Willian, who started the match over injured teammate Eden Hazard, was booked by referee Bobby Madley for what he thought was a dive in the penalty area following a missed tackle from Hector Bellerin.

With Chelsea having had a player sent off in the FA Cup final for diving in midfielder Victor Moses, forward Willian looks to be walking a fine line at the Blues search for their first Community Shield win since 2009.
