MOST COMMENTED

"I saw it on the computer and I understand why they can be talking if it was or not [a penalty]. It's very difficult. I never, ever would expect to get a penalty here. Ever. If it was given against me, I would do the same [as Chelsea assistant Rui Faria, who had to be restrained from entering the field]. Emotion gets the better of you, and that could be the key moment for the title, that one. When it's for you, you feel you can see why he gave it. Especially with the angle the linesman had to see the incident: [Cesar] Azpilicueta going down and then [Jozy] Altidore following. But if it was against me, in a situation like that, I would have been fuming, for sure."

-- Sunderland manager Gus Poyet, who admitted the Black Cats were very lucky to have a penalty kick called when Altidore went down in the penalty area late in the Black Cats' 2-1 win at Chelsea. (Guardian)
