Burnley boss Vincent Kompany has been charged with misconduct after the Belgian protested the referee's decision to award a penalty in the 2-2 draw at Chelsea, England's Football Association said on Wednesday.

Kompany was shown a red card for protesting against the spot-kick decision when Burnley's Lorenz Assignon received a second yellow card for his foul, reducing the visitors to 10 men.

"It's alleged that the manager's language and/or behaviour around the 40th minute was improper and/or abusive and/or insulting towards a match official and/or questioned their integrity," the FA said in a statement.

A frustrated Kompany later went on to say that refereeing standards in the Premier League have dropped this season. He has until Friday to respond to the FA's charge.
