Chelsea suffered a major blow to the team’s chances of winning the Premier League today after they lost 2-1 to Sunderland at Stamford Bridge. The loss for Jose Mourinho was his first defeat in the Premier League in a game played at Stamford Bridge since 2004, snapping a 77-match unbeaten league record.
In his post match press conference, Jose Mourinho was sarcastic in his “fantastic” congratulations to referee Mike Dean and referees’ chief Mike Riley. Dean was the match official for today’s match, where Sunderland were awarded a late penalty after Cesar Azpilicueta brought down Jozy Altidore in the box. Riley is Dean’s boss.
With his sarcastic “praise” for referee Mike Dean, he escapes punishment from The FA by not criticizing the match officials, but still gets his message across in his belief that Chelsea were defeated today (and in the past month) as a result of officiating mistakes.
Mourinho continues his mind games, but comes out looking like a sore loser yet again after Chelsea have been defeated in recent weeks by Sunderland, Crystal Palace and Aston Villa.
