Chelsea have denied that Ashley Cole taunted Manchester City's players immediately after Monday night's 2-1 victory at Stamford Bridge.

Cole is reported to have incited a confrontation in the tunnel by mocking City over their group exit from the Champions League.

However, Chelsea insist the England left-back did not make the comments and stress that he is on good terms with City, and a Chelsea spokesman said: "Contrary to reports, Ashley Cole did not say anything to the opposition in the tunnel after Monday's game."
