While trying to defend Harry Kane, the former Red Devils boss alleged that the likes of Chelsea, Man United, Man City, and Liverpool have attempted to manipulate the con official into awarding a penalty kick in their favour.

Jose Mourinho was reacting to the claims that Harry Kane deliberately backed into Adam Lallana which got him the penalty in the 2-1 win over Brighton last week.

He, therefore, said “Kane I think you are confused. You could be speaking about some Manchester United players, Some Man City players, some Liverpool players, some Chelsea players.

With the West London outfit already having eight penalties in their favour this season, Frank Lampard says none of the penalties were awarded for a player who dived.

Admitting that Jose Mourinho goofed with such a remark, the Blues boss said “I’m not going to tell Jose or any other manager how to do a press conference.

However, the West London outfit have been fantastic in their performances across all competitions in recent games, in addition to enjoying a clean sheet in five successive games this season.

Chelsea have now been tipped to challenge the Premier League and the Champions League as well. They are four points behind the current league leaders and have won all their group games in the Champions League.
