Chelsea manager Andre Villas-Boas will reportedly face an FA charge after criticising referee Chris Foy after his club’s defeat to QPR on Sunday, according to The Daily Mirror.

The Blues went down 1-0 at Loftus Road after giving away an early penalty and saw Jose Bosingwa and Didier Drogba sent off in the first half.

The Stamford Bridge club will receive a £25,000 fine after collecting seven bookings as well as the two red cards, while Villas-Boas is set to be charged by the FA.

The Portuguese manager aired his grievances after the final whistle with Foy and the fourth official Kevin Friend, and again in his post-match interviews, saying of Foy that he “couldn’t handle a game of this emotion”.

He disputed the sending-off of Bosingwa, as well as the decisions that saw David Luiz concede a penalty converted by Heidar Helguson while several Chelsea appeals were ignored.
