Martinez rues cruelty of game

Published Add your comment

Roberto Martinez accused Barclays Premier League officials of persecuting Wigan in their fight to stay in the Barclays Premier League after two more decisions cost his side dearly in their 2-1 defeat at Chelsea.

Latics boss Martinez insisted both Blues goals should have been ruled out for offside after watching Juan Mata's 93rd-minute winner deny his side a result that would have lifted them out of the bottom three for the first time in almost four months.

Martinez said: "Unfortunately, we have had too many times this season when it's not about matter of opinions, it's about clear calls that have been against us. I don't want to go into the debate that it's very easy to referee against little Wigan but, unfortunately, I believe this is the best league in the world and we should get better decisions than that."
