In the wake of the Blues’ defeat to Crystal Palace, Jose Mourinho has criticised the refereeing decision that saw Kurt Zouma denied what seemed a very good shout for a penalty during the first half, the Daily Mirror report.

Mourinho believes that had the spot-kick been given, the result could have been very different.

“That penalty was our best moment in the first-half and I can imagine that if the result at half-time is 1-0 that the game could be completely different,” he explained.


Despite the criticism of the referee, Mourinho also admitted that some of his players were below par, and hinted that some may find that their futures lie elsewhere, the Daily Express report.

“Even when you are trusting the player, [there] arrives a moment when you think, ‘I have to change’. And I can go both ways,” he suggested.

The Premier League champions are furious about how Everton have conducted themselves during the John Stones saga, the Daily Express report.

The Toffees reportedly told the Blues that a £34m bid would be accepted, but changed their mind once an offer of that amount was prepared.

Having now accepted that their pursuit of Stones is over, Chelsea have made an approach for Paris Saint-Germain centre-back Marquinhos, the Daily Star report.

However, the Ligue 1 side have reportedly insisted that the 21-year-old is not for sale.


Finally, Monaco defender Aymen Abdennour has joined Valencia, despite previously stating he wished to move to Stamford Bridge, the Daily Mail report.
