The Stench Of Denial Is Strong From Chelsea's Website After That Loss To West Ham

The Stench Of Denial Is Strong From Chelsea's Website After That Loss To West Ham
By PJ Browne

By the majority of accounts, West Ham fully deserved their victory against Chelsea on Saturday afternoon.

Over on the Chelsea website, their match report had a different view on events.

Jose Mourinho's side's fifth defeat of the season was the result of 'cruel circumstances'. Those circumstances included Nemanja Matic being sent off for receiving two yellow cards and not being allowed a goal which - according to the goal-line technology system - did not cross the line.

The Blues were beaten in cruel circumstances at Upton Park this afternoon having had to play the whole second half with 10 men.

After West Ham had taken an early lead through Mauro Zarate, Kurt Zouma’s header looked to have crossed the line, only for the decision to go the home side’s way, before Cesc Fabregas beat Adrian but saw the goal ruled out for offside when he appeared to have been played onside by the retreating West Ham defenders. Nemanja Matic was then sent off on the stroke of the break for a second bookable offence.

The 10 men rallied impressively however and were the better side in the second half. Gary Cahill equalised 10 minutes after the break with his first goal of the season, but Andy Carroll’s late header, which came against the run of play, won it for the hosts.

It's really a report which reflects the whiny, excuse-making regime which Chelsea have had under Jose Mourinho this season.

Chelsea also took bitching - regarding the Matic red card - to a special level. They had two players booked for protesting, along with both a coach and Jose Mourinho (at half time) sent to the stands.
