Chelsea may have qualified for the next round of the FA Cup, but the match will go down the anal of history as one of the most difficult for Chelsea. Not only did Norwich make a go for a place in the next round by playing like their life depended on it, referee Graham Scott in my opinion had what could be described as the most disappointing display by a referee in recent years.

We had decent chances to put the game to bed, and although credit has to be given to Norwich goalkeeper for some of the impressive saves to keep his side in the game, we should have easily wrapped things up had the referee actually done his job like it should have been. Two penalty shouts were denied us, and two reds shown to our players. And that’s not to mention Willian’s yellow. Morata also got a red for protesting a questionable yellow card decision for ‘diving’. It was a nightmare game, and probably could have gone Norwich’s way if not for luck and the grit showed by the lads. On Tuesday, the VAR system was used, so why did Graham Scott refuse to respect it on Wednesday? And if it wasn’t going to be used, why introduce it at all?

I am not one to cry and complain over referring decisions, but in my opinion, Wednesday’s officiating from Graham Scott was flawed. But then, we can be thankful to Willy Caballero and the rest of the lads who made sure Chelsea advance to the next round of the FA Cup.

    These are the reasons why England have it difficulties when they went World cup or Europa cup they can do anything.

    why because their referees are not good to officiate matches as well. And if their players went out there and met good referees they suffer it. let check again this world cup.

    Good morning everybody
