Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel was unhappy with a decision the referee made in Chelsea’s 2-0 victory over Newcastle United on Monday night.

Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham picked up an injury after a rash challenge from Newcastle United defender Jamaal Lascelles but the referee failed to point to the spot.

Tuchel insists it was a reckless challenge and was disappointed the referee failed to award a penalty.

Asked if he was showing the referee the tackle on Abraham on his iPad during half-time, Tuchel replied: “Yes.

“My assistant tried to show him on the iPad. We had the feeling that it was a reckless tackle. He played the ball, yes, but for it was too much because you risk the injury of an opponent and for me, it was a foul.

“It was reckless but OK, I don’t want to criticise.”
