Jose Mourinho accuses FA of double standards

Jose Mourinho accuses FA of double standards
Jose Mourinho, the Chelsea manager, has accused the Football Association of double standards having not taken action against Robin van Persie for an elbow on James Tomkins. The Blues boss remains without main striker Diego Costa for the final game of his three-match suspension against Everton on Wednesday. Costa was banned for stamping on Liverpool’s Emre Can and has questioned why other players do not get the same treatment as his talisman.

Mourinho, who did not mention van Persie by name, raised the inconsistency of the governing body’s decision on Tuesday after the Manchester United forward did not receive a violent conduct charge for what West Ham defender Tomkins described as a ‘malicious’ act. Referee Mark Clattenburg awarded a free-kick at Upton Park but failed to dish out any further disciplinary action for the elbow to Tomkins’ face in the 1-1 draw on Sunday.
