Early in the second half of Chelsea’s match with Swansea City at Stamford Bridge, Blues goalie Thibaut Courtois received a straight red for this foul on Swansea’s Gomis. He stuck out his leg to deny a clear goal-scoring opportunity according to the referee, resulting in the red.
Gomis converted the ensuing penalty past new reserve goalie Asmir Begovic, leveling the match at 2-2. Andre Ayew marked his debut for Swansea with a goal in the first half.
Courtois was a game-time decision for the match after injuring his knee during warmups. It’s just the second red card of his career; he was sent off while playing for Atletico Madrid in 2011/2012.
Begovic was a $12 million purchase from Stoke City over the summer after the departure of Petr Cech to rivals Arsenal.
