Bolton Wanderers manager Owen Coyle left Stamford Bridge with a bad taste in his mouth, after his side were slimly beaten by league leaders Chelsea last night. The former Burnley boss was incensed by the match officials, who chose not to award his team two penalties in two handball incidents involving Didier Drogba and John Terry.

"I know Drogba is a world-class player but he could play world-class volleyball for anybody on that evidence,” Coyle commented after the match. “We didn’t need any luck tonight, we only needed the officials to get the big decisions right. There were two stonewall penalties out there for handballs.”

The loss keeps Bolton in the thick of the struggle to avoid relegation, sitting just five points above the drop zone.
