Posted On April 26, 2021
West Ham will appeal Fabian Balbuena’s red card after he was sent off against Chelsea for a challenge on Ben Chilwell, according to reports.
Balbuena was sent off by referee Chris Kavanagh after he caught Blues full-back Chilwell with his studs as he cleared the ball upfield.
Kavanagh did not initially blow for a foul but the incident was brought to his attention by VAR.

The official reviewed the footage on the pitchside monitor and then decided to show a straight red card to the Paraguayan centre-back.
Hammers manager David Moyes called the decision “rank, rotten” after his side’s 1-0 defeat by their top-four rivals.
