Reece James Receives 'Harshest Red Card Ever' And Chelsea Players Completely Lose It

Reece James has been sent off for Chelsea vs Liverpool after denying a goalscoring opportunity - but many think it is very harsh.

James blocked Sadio Mane's shot inside the area and the ball bounced off his knee onto his arm.

Liverpool players protested to referee Anthony Taylor who was advised to have a look at VAR.

He did so and ruled it to be a handball and a penalty, before showing red to the 21-year-old and Anfield erupted.

Mohamed Salah scored for the Reds to equalise and make it 1-1 just before half-time.

Edouard Mendy kicked the ball away in frustration and it saw Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson confront him.

It started a minor scuffle between both sets of players as tempers flared inside Anfield.

Fans have reacted to the incident and they think James was unlucky to walk.

Antonio Rudiger was booked for protesting against the penalty while Cesar Azpilicueta furiously argued with Taylor while going down the tunnel.

Kai Havertz had given Chelsea the lead with a brilliant looping header that caught Alisson off guard.

Both sides have a 100% record so far this season and the second half promises to be an enthralling spectacle.

Do you think it was a penalty? Do you think Reece James deserved to be sent off?
