Harry Redknapp: 'Chelsea penalty was harsh'

Queens Park Rangers manager Harry Redknapp bemoans the "harsh" decision to award Chelsea a late penalty in their Premier League defeat at Stamford Bridge.

Queens Park Rangers manager Harry Redknapp has said that the decision to award Chelsea their match-winning penalty was a "harsh" one on his side.

Eden Hazard converted the late spot kick to earn the Blues a 2-1 win at Stamford Bridge after Eduardo Vargas brought the Belgian down in the box.

After the game, Redknapp told BBC Sport: "I thought it was a harsh penalty that won it for Chelsea. It was a shoulder to shoulder charge and our guy was a bit stronger than the Chelsea guy, who went over.

"We played well against Liverpool and we've played well against Chelsea. But to get no points from the two games is obviously disappointing.

"However, there's lots of positives. We showed a great attitude and I think we have got enough to stay in this division."

Next up for QPR is a clash against champions Manchester City.
