Bolton skipper Nolan: Chelsea likely to be handed penalty

Nolan said: “After each of Chelsea’s last two games he has suggested his team should have been awarded a penalty – a tactic with several possible positive effects. By keeping the issue in the news and hinting at an injustice, Mourinho might contribute to his team winning a penalty in a crunch fixture.”

He added on the Blues boss: “Sometimes people might think he has gone too far or that he is losing it – but I don’t believe that for a second. Mourinho is a superb manager.”
