David Marshall: Gutted by Chelsea's controversial equaliser

Samuel Eto'o stole possession from Marshall as he bounced the ball to help set-up Chelsea's equaliser for Eden Hazard before half-time to cancel out Jordon Mutch's opener for Cardiff.

Cardiff boss Malky Mackay was left seething by Chelsea's leveller feeling referee Anthony Taylor got the call wrong in what was the turning point in the game.

Scotland international Marshall admitted he was gutted at the decision feeling he had let his team-mates down.

"I am not sure if the linesman, referee think maybe I have dropped the ball thinking he's [Eto'o] not there, but I knew he was there and I have bounced it so hopefully we can get it cleared up," Marshall told Sky Sports News.

"But it doesn't help us now, it is just disappointing as the boys had done great in front of me and we were in such a good position.

"I am just gutted to let them down.

"As I say I shouldn't have bounced it and it probably is my fault."

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
