Video: Gary Cahill’s Early Red Card v Burnley Looked Very Soft

Gary Cahill’s early red card for Chelsea against Burnley looked very soft.

The new Blues captain managed just 13 minutes of his side’s opening Premier League match this afternoon after being given his marching orders for serious foul play.

But did he deserve the red card? We’re not so sure after seeing the tackle:

There’s no doubt Cahill catches Burnley midfielder Steven Defour, but was it really enough to warrant that reaction from the referee?

Regardless, it’s a big setback for the defending champions as they look to kick their campaign off with a victory.

They were outstanding in winning the title last season, but it’ll be harder to defend it this campaign and a red card in the opening definitely won’t help.

Burnley have managed to take advantage of it, though, with Sam Vokes scoring to give them a 1-0 lead before half-time.

What’s your view – should Cahill have been sent off?
