Okay, so it’s not an elbow in the truest sense, but Ramires was unarguably an extremely lucky, lucky boy as he managed to avoid any punishment for openly clouting Sunderland’s Seb Larsson in the face during Chelsea’s 1-2 defeat at Stamford Bridge this evening.

Larsson had previously nibbled at Ramires’ heel as they ran side-by-side, but the Brazilian’s violent reaction was, quite frankly, despicable – though it went completely unseen by referee Mike Dean…

Ramires wasn’t the only one in the Blues camp to get snarky during the game, with Jose Mourinho having to manhandle his assistant, Rui Faria, before the Chelsea coach was sent down the tunnel for squaring up to Dean over Sunderland’s debatable penalty…
