Chelsea lodge appeal against Lampard red card

Chelsea have appealed against the red card shown to midfielder Frank Lampard in Sunday's 2-0 Premier League defeat to Liverpool.

England international Lampard faces a three-match ban after being sent off on the hour mark by referee Mike Riley for a tackle on Liverpool midfielder Xabi Alonso with the score at 0-0.

The FA confirmed on its website that a regulatory commission would hear the appeal on Tuesday.

"I only ask that the referee and the men from the FA look at the video," Chelsea manager Luiz Felipe Scolari told the club's website.

Chelsea defender Jose Bosingwa escaped an FA inquiry after the Portuguese international stamped on Liverpool's Yossi Benayoun in the dying minutes of Sunday's defeat, an act which went unpunished by Riley.

"Bosingwa was not correct. He made a mistake and maybe he has punishment (to come)," Scolari added. "But if Bosingwa has a punishment ... maybe they change Lampard's red card and maybe he plays the next games."

On Monday Bosingwa issued an apology, which appears to have resulted in leniency from the FA.

"I apologise for what I did," Bosingwa told the Chelsea website. "It was never my intention to hurt him. I know it was wrong and I apologise,"
