First of all, to echo the majority of the other posts - all three cards correct, Mitrovic actions scandalous and big ban due and on the whole, referee handled the situation well.

But just a couple of points, firstly from the wide angle you can see that when CK gets to the monitor and Silva first approaches him the assitant on the side is drinking from a bottle, so when CK gets his red card out you see him quickly drop the bottle and 'sitch back on' - just an example to all that at no point should you switch off during the match -= even when you thnk the action will be dead

Secondly - and to reiterate, the reaction is ridiculous, but why was CK so quick to get the red out fot Willian? As soon as he walks back to the pitch, when he is 80 yards from the penalty spot and 50 yards from Willian he points for the penalty and waves the red card in Willians direction while stood next to Mitrovic. Now I know the non-league style of bringing the player to one side, confiming the name etc. wouldn't happen - but I still think getting closer to the player may have helped. We are all headed up to that penalty area for the penalty - so just get the card out when you are there.

Once he walks away from the monitor and does the VAR signal there can only be one possible outcome, penalty and a red card.  I'd argue that in walking over to Willian to show the red card he would have risked even more players surrounding him.  It wasn't as if there was any doubt who the card was for, so he might as well just flash it from a distance rather than unnecessarily drag things out.
