This is the Cesc Fabregas 'dive' that had Jose Mourinho ranting and raving after the game

The Special One almost never raises his voice in interviews, so you know he was mad.

Jose was very, very unhappy with the referee's performance today.

CHELSEA COULD ONLY get a point at St Mary’s against Southampton earlier today and afterwards Jose Mourinho was mad – but not at the performance.

Rather, The Special One’s fury was directed at referee Anthony Taylor after he booked Cesc Fabregas for diving in the area.

Mourinho thinks his side are being unfairly targeted by officials when it comes to diving.

“The reality is there are penalties and penalties — this one was a huge one,” he told Sky Sports.

“Match after match, coaches are saying Chelsea players are diving. I will go to the referee and wish him a good year and tell him he will be ashamed.”

Here is the incident. It looks like Jose might have a point.
