Villas-Boas facing FA wrath

Chelsea boss Andre Villas-Boas is facing action from the Football Association following his outspoken attack on referee Chris Foy on Sunday.

• Villas-Boas blames ref for loss

QPR won the game 1-0 thanks to a Heidar Helguson penalty that was awarded for David Luiz's challenge in the eighth minute.

Foy then controversially sent off Jose Bosingwa for a last-man challenge and was left with no choice but to dismiss Didier Drogba for a two-footed lunge before half-time. He booked seven more Chelsea players, meaning the club can expect an FA fine.

Villas-Boas revealed he was ''very aggressive'' with Foy upon accosting him post-match at Loftus Road, and accused the referee who sent off two of his players of failing to treat both teams equally. He also said ''I really don't care'' over whether Foy reported him to the FA.

''I'm not happy with the difference of treatment - I don't think the same treatment was applied,'' said Villas-Boas. ''Three of the games played by Chelsea were influenced by the referee, and this is not Premier League level.

''You have to trust human error, but it's a big pattern for us. Things are not going our way. Conspiracy theories can lead to bans and lead to you calling us cry babies, and we're not. But it keeps happening. We're showing commitment and strength. Hopefully, things will go our way.''
