Thibaut Courtois is sent off against Swansea Swansea twice came from behind to draw 2-2 with Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on the opening day of the season.Thibaut Courtois was sent off in a thrilling match where both teams did not stop attacking until referee Michael Oliver blew for full-time.Chelsea were boosted ahead of the game when Diego Costa started, but it was Swansea striker Befetimbi Gomis who made the bigger impression, scoring the club’s second after a debut goal from Andre Ayew.Oscar opened the scoring and the Blues had a huge slice of luck when Willian’s cross deflected in off Federico Fernandez, but Swansea will feel unlucky not to have gone ahead.Gomis’ header in the first ten minutes tested Courtois and he was threatening again shortly afterwards but John Terry was there to block the Frenchman’s shot.Moments later Ki Sung-yueng’s shot from the edge of the area was saved and Chelsea immediately broke and were appealing for a penalty when Costa was tackled by Federico Fernandez, but replays showed it was a finely timed challenge.However, it was Chelsea who struck first, courtesy of Oscar on 22 minutes as his free-kick on the right hand side of the penalty area flew past everyone and beat Lukasz Fabianski in the visitors’ goal.Swansea hit back when Ayew pounced to score on his debut after Courtois kept Gomis’ powerful header out, but 90 seconds later, the Blues were back in front thanks to Fernandez’s own goal.And it took Swansea just ten minutes of the second half to drag themselves level again and this time Gomis finally got his goal when he beat Asmir Begovic from the spot.Controlling Jonjo Shelvey’s fantastic pass, he was then brought down by the onrushing Courtois.It was a rash challenge and Michael Oliver deemed it worthy of a red card, though the Chelsea players did not agree, with captain John Terry arguing he was able to cover Courtois if Gomis had broken clear.The striker was finally allowed to take his spot-kick after Begovic had replaced Oscar and Terry booked for fiercely protesting his team-mates’ sending off.Chelsea were forced to defend for their lives as Swansea mounted an onslaught and Gomis actually had the ball in the back of the net, but was ruled out for offside.Then Jose Mourinho decided to throw Radamel Falcao on in the final five minutes bringing cheers from the home support, but the Colombian could not break Swansea’s defence.It was a point well earned and Garry Monk’s men can count themselves unlucky not to win and the players rightly took the acclaim of their travelling fans at the end. 1
