Chelsea will dominate this game and we'll be lucky to get a sniff. Too much quality, too much efficiency.

Chelsea 4-0 Burnley.

Saw it coming as much as that might be hard to believe. Burnley never know when they're beaten and aren't fazed by top opposition.

That's an awful, awful challenge on Matic. Could easily have been a leg breaker. His reaction was stupid though, just stay down and let the ref make his decision.

Only saw the red card, if ever there was justification for a violent reaction it's after being challenged like that. As it is he only gave him a little push, not even sure that constitutes violent conduct.

By most accounts we played gash again, regardless of hapless refereeing. We haven't had a good performance since Swansea away. Still, jose is probably within his rights to blame Atkinson as a big reason we didn't get 3 points.

I do seem to remember it was the referee that helped them get their draw with City too. Though maybe it was Hull.

Genuinely surprised by the result. Not surprised by our performance, we've done ourselves proud all year and shown we can give a good account of ourselves, but I thought Chelsea would have too much. In reality, it sounds like a combination of Chelsea playing badly and some generous refereeing decisions give us a vital point.

Macclesfield Town/Manchester City. It's complicated.

No matter what, you don't retaliate. The laws of the game don't say 'unless you are REALLY hacked off'.

I think most of us would have reacted the same had it happen to us, but you just can't do that an it was a straight red. Ivanovic should have got a red too for not letting the ref show Matic the red as well. The Burnley lad will get three games on Monday.

The first one on Ivanovic by Barnes looked deliberate to me, not sure about the Matic one. He made the pass and then it just seemed unfortunate that Matic had come across where Barnes would naturally bring his leg down?

Well disguised if deliberate, potentially accidentally though perhaps.

Why did Ivanovic sound like a dolphin in labour when he was hit so hard he was able to spring up and complain within seconds?

Stop 'simulation' and you might get the decisions.

Indeed, he's built like a tank but screamed like a teenage girl at a Justin Bieber concert - big girl's blouse.

He definitely won't.

For a tackle like that? Surely its at least a 3 match ban?
Depends on whether the ref saw it and mention it in his match report. If he did, then I think it's deemed to have been dealt with.

If it's something the ref missed (i.e something missing from his report), then surely he'll get a 3 match ban?

I don't really care about the incidents...We were woeful and deserved nothing from the game.

He didn't get booked for it, so I suspect there's a chance.

Wouldn't be surprised if the FA banned him to deflect from Jose's increasingly insane tinfoil hattery.
