Mourinho has gotten into trouble previously for comments against the FA

Jose Mourinho has expressed displeasure at the Football Association’s decision of not taking any disciplinary action against Manchester United striker Robin Van Persie, for his alleged elbow on West Ham defender James Tomkins.

Tomkins accused Van Persie of elbowing him intentionally during a 1-1 draw at Upton Park on Sunday. The referee apparently spotted the incident and decided not to charge Van Persie.

"I need a bit more time to understand why some people are punished, others aren't," said the Chelsea manager.

Mourinho has been vocal about "campaign" to influence referees against Chelsea after his star striker Diego Costa was handed a three match ban for stamping on Liverpool player Emre Can, last month. The Blues manager has already been fined £25,000 for his previous comments on the matter.

Referees being biased against Chelsea

Mourinho feels that Chelsea has been singled out when it comes to refereeing decisions.

"The same people that suspended my player didn't want to suspend a player this weekend. And they could. I know that if it was one of mine...

"Last season happened the same thing, when Ramires was suspended. It was exactly the same thing.

"A Manchester City player [Yaya Toure] kicked a player on the floor at Norwich [Ricky van Wolfswinkel] and nothing happened.“
