Mourinho waits card decision

BIRMINGHAM, England - Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho is mystified as to why he was sent off in his side's shock 1-0 loss to Aston Villa and says he is eagerly waiting on the referee's report to discover if he faces any further disciplinary action.

Mourinho found himself at the centre of a storm of controversy as his side surrendered the initiative to Manchester City in the Premier League title race.

Fabian Delph's 82nd-minute goal either side of dismissals for Chelsea duo Willian and Ramires inflicted a damaging defeat on the Blues as they failed to extend their advantage over second-placed City beyond six points, with Manuel Pellegrini's team having three games in hand.

And frustrations boiled over in added time when Mourinho ventured onto the field to vent his anger over Ramires' red card — for a two-footed lunge on Karim El Ahmadi — before subsequently receiving his own marching orders from Foy.

The Portuguese insisted afterwards he was in the dark as to why he was dismissed, claiming Foy twice refused to speak with him — once during the game and once afterwards down the tunnel.
