OPINION: This Is The Worst Decision Made By A Referee In The FA Cup This Season

Chelsea faced Manchester City at Wembley in the semi final of the Emirates FA Cup. During the match up, there was a decision the referee (Mike Dean) made that i was not really impressed with.

Chelsea played well ag Manchester City in the opening minutes of the first half as Thomas Tuchel side dominated play in the match and had better chances of scoring in the first half of the match but somehow failed to hit the target. Manchester City also played well in the first half of the match, they had the only shot on target in the first half of the match as Chelsea failed to get a single shot on target in the first half of the match.

Mason Mount and Fernandinho came in contact few times in the first half of the match and Fernandinho made reckless challenges against the English midfielder. Fernandinho stepped on Mason Mount face instead of the officiating referee to give a proper decision, he ignored Mason Mount complains.

Fernandinho clearly made a terrible foul on Mason Mount but the referee Mike Dean nwber even bothered to review the situation or make any further de he just waved play on. Fernandinho did not only foul Mason Mount, he stepped on his face and clearly he did it on purpose. That's an unsportsmanlike act and the referee should have shown a yellow card, Fernandinho should have gotten a yellow card or even better a red card after he stepped on Mason Mount face.

Mason Mount made complains but the referee ignored him, Fernandinho also fouled Mason Mount later in the first half of the match the referee never bothered to give proper attention to that. I know we have to respect the referee and other official decisions but in this case the referee should have taken proper action. Either Fernandinho gets booked or he gets sent off for his bad conduct on Mason Mount.

As a football fan, what do you think should have happened in this situation? Did Fernandinho deserve to go away freely after he committed that act on Mason Mount?
