Mason Mount claims Tomori's red card was not justified

Fikayo Tomori got sent off for his challenge on Mason Mount.

The Blues won 2-0 over AC Milan in the Champions League on Tuesday night at San Siro.

Former Chelsea defender Fikayo Tomori was sent off for pulling down Mason Mount in the box.

The 24-year-old defender was shown a red card for his offence and his former teammate Mason Mount claims the red card was not warranted.

“He’s obviously my mate, I’ve known Fik for a very long time and I felt for him in that situation, I was gutted for him,” Mount told Chelsea’s website. “I don’t think it was a sending-off. Was it a penalty? Maybe yes.

“I’m an honest player and I want to try to score a goal and he pulled me back a little bit, but I feel for him for that decision. It’s a tough one.”

Mount added: “I felt him trying to pull me back, but I was running to goal so I wasn’t going to go down and I felt like I could still have an opportunity to score. So I carried on going, didn’t score and then obviously the ref blew up and gave a pen straight away.

“I was probably a bit surprised at the time because I’ve still gone through and had a shot. It was hard to see him get sent off.”
