0 FOUL ARS CHE NC Diaby held his arms around Oscar, then stopped the ball with his feet, but first offence was a foul but not given 3
0 PENALTY ARS NC Foul started outside the penalty area but Diaby still held him inside the penalty area so should have been a penalty. 5

5 GOAL KICK CHE C Branislav Ivanovic concedes a goal kick. 1
5 FOUL CHE ARS NC Ramires plants his studs on the foot of Coquelin, foul not given 3
5 YELLOW CHE NC Planting studs on someone is dangerous and can cause injuries, should have been booked 3
5 FREE KICK ARS NC Juan Mata scores a goal for Chelsea but only as a direct result of the ref not giving the free kick seconds earlier. No Arsenal player touched the ball and seconds later the ball was in the net. Should have been a free kick for Arsenal and the goal should not have happened 3

12 GOAL KICK CHE C Fernando Torres concedes a goal kick. 1
14 GOAL KICK CHE C Oscar dos Santos Emboada Junior concedes a goal kick. 1
15 PENALTY ARS NC It shouldn’t have been a penalty but if the ref wanted to penalise something it has to be a free kick for Arsenal for a dive 5
15 FOUL ARS NC On the slow motion it is clear to see that Ramirez plays the ball backwards and goes to follow the path of the ball. Szczesny has spraid himself and then Ramirez changes his footing and puts his leg forward looking to make contact with the keeper and throws himself to the ground. One of the better attempts of a dive I have seen in a long while. But Ramires didn’t go down because of contact with the keeper but he brought himself down. No foul from the keeper 3
