However, was it really a foul?
Social media site Twitter exploded after the last minute incident which saw Chelsea secure a point suggesting that Brazilian Ramires had hit the deck a little too easily.
Ramires runs into Reid for me - not other way round. Refs view of it may have been - that's WHY. As I've said - 'soft' is understatement— Guy Mowbray (@Guymowbray) November 9, 2013
Mourinho called the Ramires incident a 'clear penalty' as well as saying Jan should've been punished for Torres red. Have a day off mate.— Ben Alfrey (@InsideN17) November 9, 2013
Steven Reid was deemed to be the offending party by the referee but several fans appear to feel a bit sorry for the Baggies who produced a solid and professional performance, unlucky not to take all three points.
It does just look like a 50/50 challenge if that with Ramires clearly aware of Reid’s presence, the importance of the situation and the fact that Chelsea were potentially not going to get another chance to score a goal.
