Manchester: Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho yesterday said Man City have been lucky to get some favourable decision from the referees.

City moved to the top of the table after crushing Tottenham Hotspur 5-1 on Wednesday. Chelsea were keeping pace, but a 0-0 draw at home to West Ham United in mid-week saw them fall three points behind.

Mourinho said: "They're lucky. They have many crucial decisions in their favour. Against Liverpool, the (Raheem) Sterling 'goal;.

The penalty on (Luis) Suarez (wasn't given). Against Newcastle the (Cheick Tiote) goal that is a clear goal. Against Spurs, (Michael) Dawson's goal, etc."
