FA HYPOCRISY hurts Chelsea


Recommended Posts

Diego Costa has been cited retrospectively by the FA, and could miss three games following his alleged "stamps" in Tuesday's win over Liverpool.

In a move that stinks of hypocrisy and double standards, Costa, targeted throughout both legs by Liverpool's thug of a centre-back Martin Skrtel faces a three-game suspension, starting with Saturday's crunch game with Manchester City.

Costa was adjudged to have "stamped" on both Emre Can and Skrtel in Tuesday's victory, though both incidents seemed to have little in them and were only blown out of all proportions by a Liverpool side so easily wound up despite their own endless provocations of the Chelsea striker.

Nothing will be said, surely, about Skrtel and Lucas double-teaming Costa with two vicious elbows in last week's first leg, though:

The fact Chelsea were denied TWO clear penalties, and that both Lucas and Jordan Henderson stayed on the pitch - despite the former accumulating FIVE fouls on the pitch, including this incident that should have led to a Blues spot-kick; whilst Henderson denied a promising Chelsea attack with this blatant handball which should have resulted in a second yellow.

It seems the media's "campaign against Chelsea", as José Mourinho would put it - and has subsequently been fined for, whereas every other manager would barely get a slapped wrist - is in full flow. It doesn't bear thinking about how many times the Blues have been screwed over by incompetent officiating, and this is salt into the wound.

Ashley Cole once famously labelled the FA as a "bunch of twats", and on the evidence of this, I'm inclined to agree.
