Chelsea ‘slathered in mayonnaise’

BRENDAN Rodgers has accused Rafael Benitez of coating his players in garlic mayonnaise. 

After Luis Suarez tucked into defender Ivanovic during yesterday’s match, Liverpool players say their opponents had a distractingly scrumptious odour throughout the game.

Rodgers said: “I spotted a big pot of allioli in the away dressing room at half time and I could hardly shout out my pointless instructions for my stomach rumbling.

“It’s very hard to focus on the match when you just want to tuck your opponents into a nice warm pitta bread with some salad.”
