Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has criticised Cardiff City for "time-wasting" following his side's 4-1 victory.

There were a number of controversial incidents during the game, including Chelsea's disputed equaliser, and Mourinho was sent to the stands by the referee midway through the second half.

Speaking at a press conference last night, the Chelsea boss said: "If i was in that game and I was paying my ticket, i would be worried with the fact that every time the ball was out or stopped and our opponent had to put the ball back in the game, it took a median of 21.5 seconds.

"That is a waste of money. When you multiply that by the number of times the game was stopped, you pay for 90 minutes but you see 55 or 60. For me, that's breaking the rules."
