Martinez rues Barry red card, says Chelsea players’ “conduct was a real shame”
After Chelsea’s 1-0 win over Everton on Wednesday, Blues boss Jose Mourinho lauded the referees and Everton alike.
Everton manager Roberto Martinez was happy with neither.

Whereas Mourinho hailed hard-fouling Everton and Jonathan Moss for his red card to Gareth Barry, Martinez though Chelsea’s players reacted very poorly in trying to pressure Moss into said ejection.
In other words, it was Stamford Bridge that helped undo Everton.
From the BBC:
Martinez felt Everton was in control of the game if not for the heroics of Petr Cech between the sticks. The Toffees certainly had their chances, and going down to 10 men didn’t help.
Surely Mourinho is smiling at an opposing manager giving the referee a hiding of Special One-level intensity.
