Have you seen Chelsea's bizarrely one-sided match report from City defeat?

Some of the highlights include accusing City defender Eliaquim Mangala of committing some ‘WWE-style’ fouls.

JOSE MOURINHO WAS criticised on social media yesterday for suggesting that Manchester City’s comprehensive 3-0 victory was ‘completely fake’.

Everyone other than Mourinho witnessed an impressive performance from Manuel Pellegrini’s side, which saw them open up a five points gap between them and the champions. But as bad as that was, Chelsea’s official website heaped further embarrassment on the club after posting a hilariously biased match report.

Some of the highlights include accusing City defender Eliaquim Mangala of committing some ‘WWE-style’ fouls, while saying Vincent Kompany and Fernandinho goals were simply ‘gloss on the result’.

It begins: “A Ramires goal incorrectly ruled out for offside with Man City a goal ahead changed the complexion of this early-season Premier League fixture.

“The Brazilian latched on to a brilliant Cesc Fabregas pass early in the second period and nudged the ball home but an errant offside flag denied us a deserved leveller.”

And it just gets better from there. Here are some of our favourite passages:

“We dominated after the interval and after Ramires’ goal was disallowed, Hazard drew a fine stop from Joe Hart. Two late City goals, from Vincent Kompany and Fernandinho, added some gloss to a final scoreline which did not accurately reflect the bigger picture.”
“On the other side of the pitch, Mangala resorted to WWE-style tactics to stop the ever-dangerous Diego Costa getting free down the right.”
“Diego Costa hit the post in time added on and Hart was in the right place to block Hazard’s follow-up effort. It epitomised what had been a game of very fine margins.”
