With Gareth Barry sent off late on for a second yellow just prior to Willian’s winning goal, and Branislav Ivanovic avoiding punishment for an alleged headbutt or bite, Martinez has called for action to stop this trend.
The Spaniard saying it is something that often happens at Stamford Bridge.
“To give Barry a second yellow just because of the reaction of the Chelsea players, that is disappointing,” he said.
“You don’t want to believe that that decision is given because of the reaction of the players. It’s something that we constantly see here. We have to allow the authorities to look into it.”
