Chelsea defender Cesar Azpilicueta was involved in an incident that led to the red card of Antonee Robinson.

A reckless tackle from the Fulham player ensured his team finished the game with a man down, with the referee not hesitating to show a red card to Robinson.

After the game, Azpilicueta spoke about the incident and showed his relief that he saw the tackle ahead of time to avoid the full brunt of the challenge.

“I saw him running,” Azpilicueta recalled when recounting the experience.

“It was 50-50, I always put my leg in for that, I don’t want to come out of that, I like the challenge, so I was lucky to pull my leg out and to jump after, because I think he was quite in a rush and had a bit of a nasty tackle.”
