Lampard: “Militao should have seen red”

Chelsea gave Real Madrid plenty of problems in the first 60 minutes at Stamford Bridge with a positive performance on the night but, in keeping with their season as a whole, failed to seize their chance, with N’Golo Kante fending off his two best opportunities.

He said: “Militao was a second yellow card, I won’t say what I really think. At this level a yellow card is given a lot.
