Jose Mourinho made a surprise appearance on Sky Sports yesterday and didn't hold back after having made a personal request to appear.

The Chelsea manager was keen to express his views following his side's 1-1 draw with Burnley on Saturday, so much so he bumped scheduled guest James Beattie so that he could appear on Goals on Sunday.

The Portuguese felt a number of decisions went against his team at Stamford Bridge - most notably the incident involving an unpunished horrendous challenge by Ashley Barnes that triggered a red card for Nemanja Matic when the Chelsea midfielder reacted angrily.

Mourinho described the challenge as "criminal", questioned the performance of the referee and appeared to suggest Sky Sports had been impartial with their coverage of Diego Costa's recent misdemeanour in which the Chelsea striker stood on Emre Can.


In case you missed it, here are some of the highlights...

Mourinho also had much to say about clubs other than his own, including his views on Louis van Gaal, his surprise at Frank Lampard's decision to join Manchester City and his puzzlement at Arsenal's failure to launch a challenge for the Premier League title.
