Chelsea looked like they were about to lose their first home game under Jose Mourinho to West Brom until Andre Marriner awarded Chelsea a controversial injury time penalty.
It seemed that Baggies defender Steven Reid took down Chelsea midfielder Ramires in the box, until further replays showed Ramires may have gone down to easily.
However Jose Mourinho has remained adamant that the penalty was rightfully given, and is very curious to know why Cheif of Referee’s Mike Riley felt the need to apologise to West Brom manager Steve Clarke.
“I’m very curious to know the consequences of it,” said Mourinho, speaking prior to Saturday’s match at West Ham.
“At least now the referees know, they know one thing. If in a controversial – I’m not saying a mistake – decision that hypothetically – and, I repeat, hypothetically – favours Chelsea, they know they are going to be publicly exposed by their boss. That they know.
“They can make, hypothetically, mistakes, favouring other teams, nothing happens.
“If hypothetically – and, I repeat, hypothetically – they make a mistake, they are publicly exposed by their own boss”.
