Jack Pitt-Brooke for The Independent:
For all of Chelsea’s attacking pressure in the second half, though, they could not find a winner. Their best opportunity came when Matt Targett tripped Cesc Fabregas in the box, only for referee Anthony Taylor to book Fabregas for simulation. This was the incident that sparked Mourinho’s post-match fury, not just with the “scandal” of the unawarded penalty, but with what he called a “campaign” against his team, denying them penalties that they had earned and ignoring the transgressions of their rivals.
It was a bad decision, but with all the diving from Chelsea players recently it was bound to catch up with them. They got punished for it today.
