Mourinho wants Van Persie banned for elbowing West Ham's James Tomkins

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has questioned the Football Association's decision not to punish Manchester United striker Robin van Persie for his clash with West Ham's James Tomkins.

Tomkins accused Van Persie of elbowing him in a challenge during Sunday's 1-1 Premier League draw at Upton Park.
"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."

"I need a bit more time to understand why some people are punished, others aren't," Mourinho said.
Van Persie was not charged because the incident was spotted by the referee.

Mourinho was fined £25,000 last month for claiming there was a "campaign" to influence referees' decisions against Chelsea after Blues striker Diego Costa was charged with stamping on Liverpool's Emre Can.

Costa will serve the final game of his three-match ban when league leaders Chelsea face Everton at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday.
