(Video): Jack Grealish kicks Andreas Christensen in buildup to Aston Villa goal

Chelsea have just drawn 1-1 with Aston Villa, and all the focus is on the final few minutes.

The Blues almost won it – Ben Chilwell’s late volley pinged across the face of the goal and would have meant everything else was forgotten.

As it was though, it ended up 1-1 and we were left looking back at the equalising goal.

Andreas Christensen got a lot of blame for staying on the floor after clashing with Jack Grealish, who popped up to help his team score after appearing to leave a leg in on Christensen.

Why didn’t the referee call it back, and why didn’t VAR at least have a look? We’re not really sure.

You can see the situation in the clip below, and judge for yourself:

  1. I think it depends on what you want to see. Clearly Grealish had laid off his pass and was watching the play when Christiansen steps in to block his run. I think the ref would have brought back the play for a Villa free kick if he hadn’t played advantage.
