Chelsea interim manager Roberto Di Matteo calls on the FA to review their disciplinary procedures following the ban handed to Branislav Ivanovic.

Chelsea interim manager Roberto Di Matteo has called on the Football Association to review their disciplinary procedures after Branislav Ivanovic was handed a three-match ban for colliding with Wigan Athletic's Shaun Maloney.

The FA used retrospective video evidence to charge Ivanovic, who will now miss games in the Blues' run-in.

"I think everyone is looking for consistency in their decision-making," said Di Matteo. "That's what is most important for everybody, all the stakeholders involved - consistency.

"They would have to review the decision-making and the way they give these bans, and hopefully come up with a more balanced outcome."

Chelsea's next game is a trip to Wembley for an FA Cup semi-final against London rivals Spurs before they welcome Barcelona to Stamford Bridge in the Champions League.
