The referee for Newcastle United’s clash with Chelsea tonight, Robert Jones, appeared to push Christian Pulisic in the closing stages of the match.
It was a fiery end to the match as tensions ran high between both sets of players as Chelsea chased an equalizer.
Nick Pope, Sean Longstaff and Jamaal Lascelles were booked in the added nine minutes of stoppage time, the latter not even on the pitch for his booking and receiving the yellow card after pushing Marc Cucurella as he tried to take a throw-in. .
