Mourinho happy to persist with 'disgraceful' handshakes

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho reacted sarcastically to accusations from Aston Villa assistant manager Roy Keane that his early handshakes were a 'disgrace'.

Mourinho insists he won't change his ways despite the angry response from Keane, saying: "First of all I want to say I appreciate the comments," Mourinho told reporters.

"I think they are both great examples of polite and well educated people, and because I’m a humble guy who tries to learn every day and with every experience, I appreciate the comments."

Villa sting Liverpool in title rally

Liverpool's Premier League title challenge was stopped in its tracks on Saturday as Aston Villa claimed an unlikely point at Anfield.

Paul Lambert's side raced into a two-goal lead in the first half through Andreas Weimann and Christian Benteke, who capitalised on a Simon Mignolet error.

But Daniel Sturridge pulled a goal back before the break, and the Reds were level when Steven Gerrard scored from the penalty spot after Luis Suarez went down following a Brad Guzan challenge.

Liverpool are now eight points adrift of Premier League leaders Arsenal, and only two ahead of rivals Everton, who have a game in hand.

Mancini risks rivals’ wrath

Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini looks set to risk the wrath of rival Premier League bosses by fielding a weakened side against struggling Wigan on Tuesday.

The Italian is set to rest several key names after testing fixtures against Manchester United and Chelsea with Micah Richards, Edin Dzeko and Aleksandar Kolarov all expected to start.

The news might be welcomed by his opposite number Roberto Martinez, with his side currently in the relegation zone, three points from safety but with two games in hand.

However, it is unlikely to go down as well with rivals as the scrap to avoid the drop starts to hot up.

Premier League casualties pile up during week of Cup giant-killings

It may well be a cliche but the 'magic of the FA Cup' returned with a vengeance at the weekend as Premier League clubs far and wide found themselves dumped out of the competition by lower league opposition.

Millwall got things started on Friday night, adding to Aston Villa's woes by sending Paul Lambert's men packing with a 2-1 win at The Den.
Saturday saw yet more surprises with MK Dons thrashing QPR and non-league Luton upsetting Norwich at Carrow Road.

And Sunday saw yet more shocks with Leeds humbling Tottenham, Brentford holding European champions Chelsea and Liverpool booted out of the competition by Oldham.
