Chelsea might have taken a step closer to the title after a hardly fought encounter with Arsenal at the Emirates stadium which led to a scoreless draw.
An encounter which saw the incompetence of the premier leagues refree come to the forefront once again, after Mike Oliver failing to award Chelsea any penalties after 3 offensive challenges one of which saw former Gonners captain Cesc Fabregas wrongfully booked, and Oscar hospitalised after a devastating challenge from Arsenal goal keeper Ospina.

Oscar who met and chipped Cesc Fabregas pass over the on rushing Ospina, was punched by the Arsenal goalee. And the refree failing to award a penalty after the insident, got the chelsea coaching crew at the touch line very angry. With manager Jose Mourinho angrily complaining to the forth officials.
After the encounter, Mr Mourinho confirm that Oscar was rushed to the hospital to undergo a scan in respect of a possible concussion.
But the chelsea boss rejected making any comment about the refrees performance. Saying "they had a fantastic perfomance(refrees). For the penalties claim, I live it up to you(Press) to analyse"
The draw keeps chelsea 10 point clear of the table with 5 games to go, and needing just two wins to clinch the title.
