In the 35th minute of this evening’s Premier League clash between Chelsea and Manchester United, Blues star Willian was booked for an apparent dive.
The veteran winger seemed as though he’d got the better of Manchester United’s January signing Bruno Fernandes before bundling over the Portuguese star’s knee.
The moment took place on the edge of the penalty area, the referee booked Willian after swiftly waving off the Brazilian’s protests.
Take a look at the incident below:
Chelsea are furious! ?
