Controversial Penalty Saved Chelsea From Home Defeat: Chelsea 2:2 West Brom


Chelsea 2:2 West Brom
Mourinho almost lost the match, until referee Andre Marriner came to his rescue.
Eden Hazard scored a controversial penalty deep into stoppage time to rescue a point for Chelsea from a 2-2 draw against West Brom and save Jose Mourinho from a first Barclays Premier League home defeat as Blues boss.

The Belgian midfielder, recalled to the side after being left out of the midweek Champions League win over Schalke for disciplinary reasons, converted after referee Andre Mariner pointed to the spot for what looked like a fair shoulder challenge by Steven Reid on Ramires.

It was rough justice on West Brom, who had looked set for another memorable away victory after winning at Manchester United in September.

After the game, Mourinho said: 'I am sure it was a penalty. I watched it and I watched it from different angles and there is no doubt that it is a penalty.'
Yes Mourinho, anyone can say that as far as the decision is to their favor.
