Was there a 'campaign' against Chelsea?

STOPPED: Tottenham Hotspur's Nacer Chadli is fouled by Chelsea's Willian.

Jose Mourinho complained there was a "clear campaign" against his Chelsea side following the draw at Southampton. PA Sport assesses whether key decisions were fair during the Tottenham -Chelsea clash yesterday morning (Singapore time).


Eden Hazard narrowly kept the ball in out wide and whipped a shot past Diego Costa - the striker was being marked by Kyle Walker - which rebounded off the post to Oscar.

His shot was tapped in by Costa. Spurs defenders' appeals were in vain.

Decision: Goal for Chelsea. Correct.


Jan Vertonghen fell on to the ball after blocking Oscar's run, as the Brazilian playmaker and Mourinho appeal for a penalty.

No one else nearby did and referee Phil Dowd was unmoved.

Decision: Play continued. Correct.


Gary Cahill flew in late on Harry Kane and Dowd had no hesitation in pointing to the spot.

The Chelsea defender's challenge gave him no choice just before half-time, but Mourinho came out of the break, talking into the official's ear.

Decision: Penalty. Correct.


Mourinho continually complained in the second half when Hugo Lloris took his time to put the ball back into play with a goal-kick.

Decision: Play continued. Mourinho had a point.


The Chelsea boss erupted when Hazard burst forward and went down under the challenge of Federico Fazio.

Mourinho complained to fourth official Andre Marriner and wanted a red card as the Spurs defender was the last man, but replays showed Fazio won the ball.

Decision: Play continued. Correct.


Vertonghen kicked the ball out because Costa took a blow to the head. Rather than return the ball, Fabregas took the throw-in as normal and won a corner, which Spurs cleared.

Decision: Play continued. Grey area, and in Chelsea's favour on this occasion.
