Chelsea boss Mourinho furious with referee Foy

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has severely criticised referee Chris Foy after his team lost 1-0 at Aston Villa on Saturday, and ended with nine men, writes BBC Sport.

In a largely forgettable first half, Chelsea had a goal ruled out for handball, and, in a decision which incensed Mourinho, saw Joe Bennett only given a yellow card by Foy for hauling down Ramires as he was attempting to move through on goal.


In the second half, however, there was more controversy at Villa Park as Willian was shown a second yellow card for a foul on Fabian Delph, despite there appearing to be little contact made. Delph then scored the winner for the home side when he flicked home a low cross.


In stoppage time, Ramires became the second Chelsea player to be sent off for a dangerous challenge on Karim El Ahmadi, before Mourinho was sent from the dugout by Foy, seemingly for entering the field of play while the Villa players reacted angrily to Ramires’ tackle.


And after the game, keen to avoid an FA punishment, Mourinho said of Foy: "We must be very, very unlucky to have another refereeing performance like this one. This is not about one mistake from a referee. This is about a performance from minute one to minute 94."


Mourinho also revealed that he tried to speak to Foy after the game, adding: "In the dressing rooms I tried to ask politely, can you give me five seconds? And he refused."


The result saw Chelsea’s lead at the top of the Premier League reduced to six points, with nearest rivals Manchester City having three games in hand.
