Chelsea wing-back Victor Moses saw red for Spartak Moscow in their Russian Cup defeat to Dynamo.

He later said, “Let's start with the penalty: the ball hit me in the shoulder, and the referee thought that if I made a move with my hand, I was breaking the rules. He also gave a yellow card.

"I didn't understand this answer. Whether I raised my hand or not - what's the difference? The ball hit the shoulder! And after all, initially the referee did not stop the game. Only then VAR intervened in the matter. ... So what's next?
