Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has accused the FA of double standards after they failed to charge Arsene Wenger with misconduct following a spat between the Portuguese manager and the Arsenal boss.

Wenger and Mourinho had a face-off on the touchline during the Gunners' match against the Blues at Stamford Bridge earlier in the month.

Gary Cahill went in with a hard tackle on Alexis Sanchez, which infuriated the Frenchman, and then when Mourinho asked Wenger to get out of his technical area, the managers came together, which resulted in the Gunners' boss shoving the former Real Madrid manager.

It later emerged that there would be no punishment for Wenger, infuriating the Chelsea boss, who claimed that if he had been the aggressor, the FA would have handed him a stadium ban.

"I'd have been banned for what Arsene Wenger did to me," Mourinho is quoted as saying by the Mirror.

"I gave you my reaction after the match, saying nothing had happened. The reaction from everyone else was saying nothing had happened."

"Am I surprised he wasn't punished? I'm not surprised. I'm not surprised. Charged? Charged? If it was me, it would have been a stadium ban!'' the Portuguese manager exclaimed.

Wenger has since apologised for the incident and believes both managers were at fault. He has dismissed the shoving as "part of the game".

This is not the only controversy surrounding the Chelsea manager. Aston Villa assistant manager Roy Keane branded Mourinho a "disgrace" following his attempt to shake Paul Lambert's hand before the end of a match.

The incident occurred during Chelsea's 3-0 win over the Villans earlier in the month and Mourinho was guilty of approaching the opposition dugout to shake the managers' hand before the end of the match.

Mourinho refused to comment on Keane's comments, but took a dig at the former Manchester United midfielder regarding promotions for his book and how to behave as a manager.

"I'd prefer not to comment. I don't know if he really feels it, or if he wants to sell books and needs my help for that," the former Real Madrid manager added.

"But, to be fair, I know my nature, I know my intentions. From people like him and this boss, I think I have a lot to learn about how to behave and I appreciate the comment," Mourinho remarked.
