Fans fume after Fikayo Tomori controversially sent off against former club Chelsea in Champions League clash

Fans are outraged after Fikayo Tomori was sent off in controversial fashion against former club Chelsea in the Champions League.

After losing 3-0 at Stamford Bridge last week, AC Milan hosted the Blues at the San Siro and made a fairly bright start to proceedings.

But then things went downhill very quickly for the Serie A champions in the 18th minute.

Mason Mount got in behind his former Chelsea colleague and after being caught out, Tomori put his hand on the England international's shoulder in a bid to thwart him.

Mount just about kept his balance and got his shot away, seeing Ciprian Tatarusanu save his effort and barely offering an appeal.

However, the referee immediately gestured for a penalty and gave Tomori a straight red card.

The 24-year-old was utterly perplexed by the decision and protested the call along with many of his teammates.

VAR reviewed the incident but the on-field decision remained. Jorginho dispatched the spot-kick to put Chelsea ahead but supporters felt the dismissal was incredibly harsh:

Chelsea doubled their lead in the 34rd minute through former Milan academy player Aubameyang, who notched his third goal for the club since joining from Barcelona in the summer.

In addition to the red card, Milan also had three players receive cautions as German referee Daniel Siebert got unbelievably card happy.

His actions angered the home fans, who whistled and jeered at every foul that went against them.

Rossoneri boss Stefano Pioli was furious with the red card, but the most priceless reaction went to injured goalkeeper Mike Maignan, who delivered some serious meme potential.
