Courtois: Moses Doesn’t Need To Apologise For Red Card

By Johnny Edward: 

Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois has absolved Victor Moses of any blame in Chelsea's 2-1 loss to Arsenal in the final of the English FA Cup on Saturday,  reports

The Nigerian international was sent off in the 68th minute of the defeat after receiving a second yellow card for diving.

He also blamed the centre referee Anthony Taylor for allowing Alexis Sanchez's fourth minute opener stand

"We are obviously disappointed but I want to say congratulations to Arsenal. They played a good game," Courtois said during his post match interview after the game.

"The first goal should never have been allowed – it was clearly a hand ball and then Ramsey was offside because he he was interfering in play.

"After that goal, we tried to play but they deserved it.

"Then we went down to 10 men and the red card was correct. Victor Moses doesn't need to apologise."

Both Arsenal and Chelsea will compete again in the English Community Shield at the start of next season.
