Jose Mourinho's first home league defeat as Chelsea manager

Jose Mourinho suffered his first home league defeat as Chelsea manager after his side were beaten 2-1 by Sunderland. Chelsea who was chasing Liverpool for the title got a huge dent for it at Stamford Bridge.
Samuel Eto'o gave Chelsea the lead after 12 minutes with his ninth league goal of the season. Sunderland equalised six minutes later through Connor Wickham after pouncing on Chelsea goalkeeper Mark Schwarzer's parry from Marcos Alonso's effort on the edge of the box.
Fabio Borini converted a penalty eight minutes before time to put Sunderland in front after CesarAzpilicueta fouled Jozy Altidore in the box. The penalty was bit controversial which involved Mourinho’s assistant Rui Faria to have hot words with referee.

Jose Mourinho accused referees of all but deciding the Premier League title after losing his 77-game unbeaten League record at Stamford Bridge with defeat by Sunderland.
League-leaders Liverpool has the opportunity to extend their advantage over Chelsea to five points if they beat Norwich City on Sunday. The loss is Mourinho's first at home in the league in 77 matches.
The FA's disciplinary department will be likely to review footage of the incident, able to impose sanctions given referee Dean took no action during the match.
