A red mist in Chelsea star Mason Mount was sparked in the 43rd minute of today’s Premier League encounter against Fulham, after Antonee Robinson’s nasty challenge on Cesar Azpilicueta.
Robinson recklessly clattered Chelsea’s club captain in a 50/50 after Mount wrestled the ball off of Ademola Lookman, with the full-back rightly seeing a straight red card for his challenge.
Mount was absolutely livid after the incident, going toe-to-toe with Robinson immediately, as he grabbed the ace before they were separated.
Mount was still in Robinson’s face and clearly making his feelings known as they pushed and shoved before the left-back was shown a red card, as that happened he barged the England international away – much to his displeasure before Thiago Silva pulled him back.
STRAIGHT RED CAD ?

Whilst Mount’s reaction was understandable, many would argue that he should’ve seen a booking for this kind of heated response and toing and froing with Robinson.
