Scolari unsure over Lampard, Bosingwa incidents

Chelsea boss Luiz Felipe Scolari says he is unsure of the incidents involving Frank Lampard and Jose Bosingwa and will wait until the FA looks at the footage. Lampard was sent off in the 2-0 loss to Liverpool for a challenge on Xabi Alonso and Bosingwa appeared to use his foot to push Yossi Benayoun off the pitch.

"I do not want to criticise the referee, all I ask is that he looks at the video with the men from the FA. If they agree that Lampard did not commit a foul for his red card, maybe they will change the decision," Scolari said.

"What Bosingwa did was not correct, he made a mistake. But if he is punished when the FA look at the video, maybe they will change the decision over Lampard.

"When he was sent off it changed the game for us one million per cent. We lost the middle and did not have the ball.

"I have not spoken to the referee, it was his decision. I hope though that he will look at the TV and see that he should change the decision."
