'Thug' Bruno Guimaraes is being called the 'most unlikable player' in the league after 'disgraceful' moment against Chelsea

Bruno Guimaraes was slammed for his challenge on Ian Maatsen.

Fans can't believe how Bruno Guimaraes avoided a red card against Chelsea following his reckless challenge on Ian Maatsen.

Newcastle United were dumped out of the Carabao Cup after losing a penalty shootout to Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday.

The visitors took the lead through Callum Wilson when he pounced on a Benoit Badiashile mistake in the 16th minute.

But Mykhailo Mudryk levelled in the 92nd minute after he capitalised on Kieran Trippier's error inside the box, which helped a punter win an incredible bet.

After the Ukrainian's goal, Newcastle appeared to lose their cool as Guimaraes took his frustration out on substitute Maatsen.

The Brazilian midfielder smashed into the Dutchman, who rolled off the pitch following the brutal impact.

Mudryk jumped to his teammate's defence as he confronted the Newcastle star over the challenge.

His tackle also caused a stir on social media as fans made their feelings clear.

They called him the 'most dislikable player' in the Premier League.

One X user wrote: "Bruno Guimaraes has to be the most dislikable player."

A second tweeted: "How this wasn’t red is mental."

A third added: "Dirtiest player in the league by some distance, an actual man child when things don’t go his way."

A fourth claimed: "You can see why no top clubs went in for him.. absolutely liability. Red card waiting to happen."

Another said: "Why isn't this a clear red card? I don't understand the rules anymore."

Guimaraes' tackle on Maatsen wasn't the only flashpoint in the game as Eddie Howe fumed at Moises Caicedo's challenge on Anthony Gordon.

"Anthony's (Gordon) the same. I thought it was a really poor tackle on him and the type of tackle you don't want to see taking one of our attacking players out of the game, and again he's very sore at the minute," he said after the defeat.
