Chelsea failed to score at home in the Premier League for the first time since May 2014 on Saturday as they lost 1-0 at home to lowly Bournemouth.
The Cherries, who won the game late on thanks to a scrappy Glenn Murray header, kept their second ever BPL clean sheet to frustrate a very under-par Chelsea team.
Despite his side’s obvious failings, Blues boss Jose Mourinho opted to use ‘old faithful’ when speaking to the media after the final whistle. By that, we of course mean he blamed the referee.
Mourinho was adamant that ref Mike Jones should have given Chelsea a spot kick when Diego Costa’s low cross hit Simon Francis on the arm midway through the second half.
The Special One, who ridiculously accused Eddie Howe’s attack-minded troops of parking the bus, also said that he thought Bournemouth’s goal should have been ruled out for offside.
“The result is not fair,” he told BBC Sport. “In the first half we were soft and did not press and were not aggressive and were not intense.
“In the second half everything changed. We were aggressive, created chances and had crosses and a clear penalty that the referee did not see.
“That is the game. In the moment when our opponent were thinking just about defending a clean sheet they cross the halfway line for the first time and scored.
“If it was offside it is another episode that goes against us, but I did not see it.”
