José Mourinho fumes at ref Phil Dowd and says Eden Hazard is unprotected

• Belgian is unprotected from opponents who ‘kick and kick him’
• Chelsea manager angered by decisions against Tottenham
Match report: Tottenham 5-3 Chelsea

José Mourinho has broadened his complaints that Chelsea are victims of a conspiracy by claiming Eden Hazard could eventually be driven from the Premier League because the Belgian is unprotected by referees from opponents who “kick and kick him”.

The Portuguese’s side were stunned 5-3 by Tottenham Hotspur, only the second time in a 14-year managerial career one of his teams has shipped five goals, to lose their points advantage at the top of the table and remain at the summit only on alphabetical order from Manchester City. That has left them with only one win in five away games but, while he acknowledged defensive deficiencies, Mourinho reserved his complaints over the non-award of a penalty for Jan Vertonghen’s handball when his team had actually led 1-0.
