Martinez fury at Terry goal

Everton manager Roberto Martinez blamed referee Mike Jones and his assistant referee for denying the Toffees a first Premier League victory in 21 matches against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea captain Terry backheeled a 98th-minute equaliser to bring the scores level at 3-3, but the 35-year-old was a yard offside when he received the ball from Oscar in the Everton penalty area.

Martinez, in his 250th match as a Premier League manager, was scathing of the decision of the assistant referee, and questioned why Jones had not already blown the final whistle after the fourth official had indicated seven minutes of added-on time.

“Refereeing wise you cannot justify, you cannot explain it,” he told BBC Sport.

“It cost us two points- it’s a clear-cut offside that should have been spotted.

“To make it worse, it’s 50 seconds over time. It’s something that’s not good enough.

“There is no explanation. It’s a big, big error. My reaction is of anger, pure anger.”

Chelsea manager Guus Hiddink, who is now unbeaten as Blues’ boss in the seven matches he has been in charge since replacing Jose Mourinho in December, says he asked the fourth official to add on time for Everton’s celebrations following Ramiro Funes Mori’s 90th minute goal.

“There were seven minutes added on but I told the ref they celebrated for 1.5 mins in our corner, so I said’ add a minute more’,” he said.
