Salomon Kalou has revealed Arsenal fullback Emmanuel Eboue was sorry for his challenge on Chelsea captain John Terry during last night's clash.

Chelsea striker Kalou said: "I told Emmanuel that it was a red card because he did it on purpose, but he denied that.

"He said sorry to John. He didn't mean to do it but to apologise was a nice thing to do.

"John will be a big loss for us and is very important to the squad. We will miss him and it will be difficult to do it without him but we have the players."
