Mourinho was fined £25,000 yesterday for comments he made after his side’s 1-1 draw with Southampton towards the end of December in which he suggested there was a campaign to influence referee decisions against the Blues.

This follows a further charge by the FA against Costa for violent conduct after an apparent stamp on Emre Can during the Blues’ 1-0 win over Liverpool in the Capital One Cup semi-final second leg at Stamford Bridge.

It appears the West Londoners are now staging a form of protest against these decision by English football’s governing body by refusing to hold a press conference ahead of their Premier League clash with the Citizens on Saturday.

It’s a key clash for both side’s with Mourinho’s men five points ahead of their second placed rivals and could extend their lead to eight with a win at Stamford Bridge.
