Jose Mourinho: Chelsea boss fails to face media after Man City game

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho
Chelsea only had three shots in total against Manchester City

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho declined to speak to the media after the 1-1 draw with Manchester City, which maintained their five-point Premier League lead.

Assistant first-team coach Steve Holland also failed to appear, one day after Blues striker Diego Costa was given a three-match ban for a stamp.

Mourinho cancelled his pre-match news conference on Friday.

On Wednesday he was fined £25,000 for comments he made after the 1-1 draw with Southampton on 28 December.

Mourinho had claimed there was a "campaign" to influence referees' decisions against Chelsea.

Chelsea players Loic Remy and Nemanja Matic did do television interviews after the City match.

Second-placed City remain five points behind leaders Chelsea with 15 games remaining.
