(Video) Marcos Rojo blessed to escape red card after reckless challenge on Willian

Marcos Rojo was very lucky not to have been sent off against Chelsea.

The Argentine replaced Eric Bailly in the second half after the Ivory Coast international suffered a bad knee injury, and Rojo almost forced another player off the pitch with a reckless challenge.

Chelsea winger Willian had the ball at his feet and was trying to get around several bodies before Rojo took him to the cleaners.

He didn’t think twice about it and ended up receiving a yellow card for his efforts, when in fact he deserved to see red.

We’ll take it. After Bailly’s injury, we could do without having another defender missing for the remaining fixtures.

Watch Rojo’s reckless tackle below.
