Andre Villas-Boas had very little to say over Fernando Torres' sending off for a reckless tackle during Chelsea's 4-1 win against Swansea at Stamford Bridge.
The Blues ran out comfortable winners in the end with Ramires bagging a brace and Didier Drogba scoring the other goal for the hosts, but all the talk was about the Spanish forward.
Torres, who had earlier given Chelsea the lead, was dismissed before half-time following a two-footed lunge on Mark Gower.
When asked about his thoughts on Torres' sending off, he told Sky Sports News: "Well, this is for the referee to decide, according to the rules and he decided like that, so nothing to say."
Villas-Boas was seen talking to the fourth official after Torres was dismissed and he explained: "I was just beginning to try to understand the situation but I think the referee's decision was the most important at this time."
And regarding the much-needed home victory, he added: "Yes, it was a good win for us and an important win after what happened at Old Trafford.
"Eventually we got the goal which was important but things became even more difficult for us with ten men but we didn't stop trying to take our opportunities and we came up with a fantastic result so it's really good to come back and show our resilience not only from a defeat but also what happened on Wednesday."
