Maurizio Sarri Charged With Misconduct by FA Following Touchline Row Against Burnley

Reports later emerged that Sarri had allegedly been the target of discrimination, with staff on Burnley's bench accused of calling Chelsea's boss a "s*** Italian".

Sarri did not attend the post-match media conference and assistant manager Gianfranco Zola, asked if Chelsea would contact the FA over his fellow Italian's frustrations, replied: "I think there will be a follow (up) on that".

The Chelsea coach was sent to the stands by referee Kevin Friend after becoming embroiled in a scuffle amongst players on the touchline in the dying moments of the game at Stamford Bridge.

Burnley boss Sean Dyche played down the fractious exchanges between the two benches as "handbags".

Without a win in their past two league games, Chelsea took only slender comfort from climbing one point above fifth-placed Arsenal into fourth place, level on points with third-placed Tottenham Hotspur.

Speaking on the incident, Zola revealed: "He's very frustrated, so he'd prefer not to come over here". "We expected it to be a tough game".

I think he's been offended as well, so he didn't feel it was the right thing to do, to speak to you. "That's why we're very unhappy". You say words because of the adrenaline, but he wasn't particularly happy.

Chelsea are understood to have made the referee aware of what was said to Sarri on numerous occasions during the game and he has indicated he will include their allegations in his match report.




Chelsea would have gone third with a victory, but instead they have now played a game more than the top-four rivals Spurs, Arsenal and Manchester United, who are three points behind in sixth.

Kindred Group's sportsbook analyst Ali Gill said it was the best Premier League weekend for the operator in some time.

"I don't think my coaches' language skills are that good", he said.

"We tried everything to win, but it's hard to play against a team which has two chances, two goals and doesn't want to play the match".

"It's anti-football. Wasting time all the time, especially when you have the ball".

N'Golo Kante and Gonzalo Higuain blasted two quick-fire goals but Chelsea leaked two themselves, and both from set-pieces.

Zola took a swipe at Burnley's perceived gamesmanship, which included Clarets goalkeeper Tom Heaton being booked in the first half for time-wasting.

Former Manchester United manager, David Moyes, said the Red Devils are "outsiders" to finish in the Premier League top four, and has backed Arsenal to secure the final Champions League place.
