Norwich City slipped into the relegation zone last night with a 2-1 defeat at home to Chelsea, but there was controversy over Diego Costa's winner.

Post-match Norwich manager Alex Neil said: 'When you are down that bottom end those wee bits of fortune do not go your way.

'What I did do was made the referee aware at half-time that he had got it wrong, the lad was offside, but the guy has made an honest call. It happens. I won't lambast him for that. We are really frustrated.

'I have seen the Chelsea goal back on video.

'It is offside. You would expect the officials to get it right, it is disappointing they have not got it right, they will be disappointed but obviously the assistant calls it as he sees it. He is not two or three yards off, but he is a yard or so and it is on the assistant's side. It is not as if our players are on the other side (of Costa).'
