Watch as Alvaro Morata drops the flag out of referee’s hands against Crystal Palace in a Premier League match!
Alvaro Morata was walking on the line as Chelsea got a narrow win.
The match ended 2-1, as Chelsea racked up important points for Champions League places.
This was a match that was largely in control by Chelsea. Palace scored their only goal near the end, which proved to be too little too late.
Roy Hodgson had one funny situation with a ball, while Morata could have been sent off.
Morata only entered the pitch in the second half, but he quickly got carded for a pointless confrontation with Tomkins.
Full-time: Chelsea 2-1 Crystal Palace!

Well, Morat should have gotten the second yellow card, after getting unhappy with a decision by assistant referee.
The ball went out of play and Morata thought that it was a corner kick. Assistant referee didn’t think so and pointed for a goal kick. This got Morata so mad that he pushed the flag out of assistant referee’s hands.
It was crazy that assistant referee didn’t show Morata second yellow card, but he didn’t.
This might have influenced the match, as Chelsea would be down to 10 men for the last couple of minutes.
Still, nothing happened and Chelsea got an important victory in the league.
