Jose Mourinho accused Jan Vertonghen of simulation after Fernando Torres' red card against Tottenham last weekend,

The Chelsea manager believes Torres does not deserve additional punishment from the FA following his incident with Tottenham's Vertonghen last Sunday.

Torres appeared to scratch the Belgian's face and was booked for his offence before then being shown a second yellow card for another foul on the Spurs defender.

Mourinho believes Torres mandatory one match suspension is enough of a ban saying that Vertonghen simulated the foul which lead to Torres' red card.

The Chelsea boss also played down any speculation that he was tired of the media after leaving a news conference earlier in the week and said that it was simply a misunderstanding.

Mourinho's side travel to Norfolk this weekend to face Chris Hughton's Norwich City on Sunday, and the Portuguese said he admired the Canaries' dealings in the previous transfer window stating they had prepared well for the future with their player investments.

Chelsea currently sit in fifth place in the Premier League with 11 points while Norwich are in 14th position having amassed seven points from six games.
