Roberto Mancini hit out at referee Mark Clattenburg after watching Chelsea end his Manchester City side's unbeaten start to the Barclays Premier League season.

City boss Mancini was fuming with Clattenburg's decision to wave away his side's penalty appeal while they were leading 1-0 and completely dominating at a wet and windy Stamford Bridge.

Clattenburg rubbed salt into the wound by sending off Gael Clichy as well as awarding Chelsea a late spot-kick as Mancini's men lost 2-1 and gave hope to all of their title rivals. And when asked about Clattenburg's performance, Mancini said sarcastically: "I agree with all of his decisions."
