(Video) Chelsea 0-0 Stoke: John Terry’s back-heeled ‘goal’; will Mourinho be complaining about another ref?

Posted by

John Terry scored an eye-catching back-heeled goal for Chelsea during their Capital One Cup bout against Stoke City on Tuesday evening, only for the goal to be ruled out for offside.

The Potters failed to clear their lines following a corner and Willian, picking up possession as the defensive site dissipated from the six-yard box, sent a dangerous cross into the Stoke box.

Terry, the most experienced player on the pitch, read the situation almost perfectly and raced towards Jack Butland’s goal before converting past the Potters stopper with an audacious back-heeled effort.

The centre-back raced away, celebrating a rare goal, only to be pulled back as the ref flagged for offside.

Take a look at our replay and let us know if the decision was a good one or not.

In light of Jose Mourinho’s remonstrations at the referee following the Blues’ 2-1 defeat at West Ham United on Saturday, he is unlikely to take lightly to this latest goal-denying call by the officials.
