Jordan Ayew escapes straight red card for nasty challenge on Gary Cahill

Chelsea fans were left fuming when the Swansea forward escaped a red card following a malicious challenge on the defender

Chelsea fans will be relatively pleased with that win over Swansea this evening, as it means they’re now just two points behind fourth-placed Spurs.

Spurs to bottle the top four?

Surely not.

But despite the result, supporters were left furious at full-time after Swans forward Jordan Ayew seemingly barged Gary Cahill and escaped a blatant red card in the final minute of stoppage time.

The defender was clattered to the floor following a reckless challenge by the Ghanaian international, but the referee simply gave a foul.

Ayew appeared to lose his call in the dying embers of the game and clearly struck Cahill in an off-the-ball incident.

Cahill rolled on the floor holding his head in pain before confronting the 26-year-old, and the pair squared up and shouted verbals at each other before team-mates were forced to step in and separate them.

What’s worse is that the incident happened right in front of referee Jon Moss, who really should’ve shown a card.

We can’t blame Ayew for lashing out though, with Swansea now seriously looking over their shoulder near the bottom of the table, with Southampton now just one point behind them.
