Liverpool’s Suarez accused of diving by Chelsea boss Mourinho

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has accused Liverpool striker Luis Suarez of diving to try and win a penalty during the game between the sides on Sunday, BBC Sport has reported.

As the Reds searched for a late equaliser in their 2-1 defeat, Suarez attempted to close down Chelsea right-back Cesar Azpilicueta, but appeared to be brought down by Samuel Eto’o, but referee Howard Webb waved away the appeals for a penalty.


Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers, who believed that Eto’o should have been sent off for a high tackle he made earlier in the game, said of the incident: "He's (Suarez) running to challenge Azpilicueta and Eto'o is street wise, he's cute, he blocks him. On another day you could give that as a penalty, because it's obstruction in the area.’


However, Mourinho had a different view of the challenge. He said: "It is not a tackle. Suarez lost the duel with Azpilicueta, who has the ball and is leaving the box. Now he is doing an acrobatic swimming pool jump to try to get a penalty.


"He is so clever because he also knows he is in the area with the Liverpool supporters behind him. But [referee Howard] Webb is 10 metres away and I think the only mistake he did was not to give him a yellow card."


Earlier on in the game, Chelsea recovered from Martin Skrtel’s early tap-in to turn the game around decisively before half time as Eden Hazard curled a shot home from the edge of the penalty area, before Eto’o capitalised on some poor defending to net the winner with a shot that squirmed past visiting goalkeeper Simon Mignolet.
