Norwich defender Timm Klose brought down Willian in the box during Chelsea’s FA Cup third-round replay victory over Norwich on Wednesday night but instead of awarding Chelsea a penalty, referee Graham Scott booked Willian for diving.
Klose has now revealed he was lucky not to be punished because he caught Willian.
“I think the first one on Willian is a pen,” Klose said after the game.
“I’m brutally honest there. I think I caught him.
“On the pitch I was not sure because it happened so fast. When I saw it again afterwards I was like ‘oh, that’s quite close’.
“I guess you can give it.”
