John Terry has revealed he asked referee Phil Dowd to give Swansea City defender Chico Flores his marching orders during Chelsea’s 1-0 win at the Liberty Stadium on Sunday.

Flores was red-carded after two bookable offences within two minutes, and after the second of these was dismissed following a lengthy deliberation by Dowd.

Chelsea players swarmed round the referee and Blues captain Terry said after the Premier League fixture: “I told the referee, “That’s a second yellow card for me.”
