Numerous Chelsea fans have expressed their disappointment with Nigeria international Victor Moses following his sending off for a dive in the Blues’ 2-1 FA Cup final loss to Arsenal at Wembley Stadium on Saturday, Completesportsnigeria.com reports.
With Chelsea 1-0 down following Alexis Sanchez’s opener five minutes into the first half, Moses was sent off for a second yellow card in the 68th minute for going down inside the box without any contact from Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.
Chelsea equalised in the 76th minute through Diego Costa before Aaron Ramsey scored the winner three minutes later to land Arsenal their third FA Cup trophy in the last four seasons and a record 13th overall.
Reacting to Moses’ sending off, some of the fans took to their Twitter handles to vent their anger towards the 2016/2017 Premier League winner.
Roy Richmond @sherburn berated Moses for his actions after he was sent off.
“Moses threw away his black armband when he got sent off, the man is a disgrace and should be fined by Chelsea, hope he gets reprimanded,” Richmond wrote.
Raymond Nolan @raynolan1976 lamented Moses’ attempt to con the officials.
He wrote: “Victor moses threw himself on the ground, bad, sportsmanship. Threw his armband away in tunnell.
El Patron @BelgianMaestro questioned Antonio Conte’s decision to play Moses.
He wrote: “It’s a disgrace that Moses has been in the team all season, a player not good enough for West Ham and Stoke starting for a top 4 team.”
