Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho expressed his disappointment after his side's Premier League 1-1 draw against Burnely, insisting that there were four controversial "moments" that cost the Blues the game.

The West London side, who went ahead through Branislav Ivanovic in the 14th minute, had two penalties (in the 33rd and 43rd) turned down, before Nemanja Matic was sent off in the 69th minute for reacting to a bad foul from Ashley Barnes, who went unpunished despite a similar foul on Ivanovic at the half-hour mark.

Finally, the Blues were robbed of two points after Burnley managed to net a late equaliser through Ben Mee.

And Mourinho, despite saying that he did not want to talk about the controversies in detail, feels that "four moments" in the game cost Chelsea two points.

"I think there are four moments where you can write the story of the game," Mourinho told Sky Sports. "Minutes 30, 33, 43 and 69 – the game had four moments, but do not ask me more questions, as I will not answer because I do not want to be punished."

"I cannot describe those incidents as, to do that, I have to use words that I cannot use and so it is better that we finish here. You do what you want to do, speak what you want to speak, you are not punished by that, I am, and I do not want to look silly in front of you, but I have to repeat: 30, 33, 43 and 69."

"I have nothing more to say, I am sorry," he added, before saying: "I am surprised we did not lose all three points."

On being asked whether Barnes deserved to be sent off for his fouls on Ivanovic and Matic Mourinho replied: "The player – if I can call him a player – that was involved in minute 69 and was also involved in minute 30, should have normally been in the shower in minute 31. But I prefer to finish here and just to say 30, 33, 43 and 69, and this is the story of the game."

The Portuguese also does not feel that Chelsea have a chance to overturn Matic's three-match suspension following the red card.

"Have you ever seen Chelsea win an appeal?" he added. "I don't remember."
