Reina furious at Robben 'acting'
Jose Reina is shown the red card at Stamford Bridge
Reina was sent off in the 82nd minute
Liverpool goalkeeper Jose Reina has accused Chelsea winger Arjen Robben of acting to get him sent off in Sunday's 2-0 defeat at Stamford Bridge.

Reina was dismissed after raising his hand to Robben, 21, late in the game.

But Reina, 23, was quoted in the Daily Star as saying: "I am furious with him for what happened. Robben's a big actor and he did well enough to win an Oscar.

"He is an excellent player but he was deceitful with the way he behaved. I would never hit out at another player."

Reina now faces a three-match ban after the Reds decided not to appeal against referee Alan Wiley's decision.

But Reina added: "He exaggerated what happened and therefore forced the referee to send me off.

"If we had been at Anfield, I would never have got a red card. There was also a lot of pressure from the crowd.

"My team-mates feel the same and are very angry."
