Chelsea boss Mourinho reopens Liverpool wounds with Suarez swipe

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has taken fresh aim at Liverpool striker Luis Suarez. Mourinho made a disguised reference to Suarez after victory over Tottenham. While Anfield's Uruguayan star was not mentioned by name there was no question over who was in Mourinho's sights as he turned a question about his side's predatory instincts into a rant about the top flight's "kings of the penalties".

Rather than defending Samuel Eto'o over the controversial and decisive spot-kick that saw Tottenham defender Younes Kaboul dismissed, Mourinho went on the attack.

The Chelsea manager said: "We had a big opportunity in the second minute of the game, when other players with other shirts would go for a penalty and a red card for the keeper.

"Hazard doesn't do that. He tries to go away from the keeper and he misses from a difficult angle.

"But other players in this league, in that situation, they attack the keeper. I did not see a video of Eto'o and the penalty but I want to.

"But you know the kings of the penalties, you know where they are - and they're not here."
