Marcos Rojo is sweating on potential Football Association action after the Manchester United defender appeared to stamp on Chelsea’s Eden Hazard.
Monday’s tense FA Cup quarter-final ended with Antonio Conte’s Blues triumphing 1-0, with Jose Mourinho’s latest Stamford Bridge return being thrown off kilter by Ander Herrera’s first-half dismissal.
N’Golo Kante’s fine strike proved the difference on a night that could have repercussions for United defender Rojo.
The Argentina international was involved in a number of tussles with Chelsea players throughout the game and appeared to stamp on Hazard’s chest during a second-half flare-up that could result in a retrospective sanction.
The FA is awaiting the referee’s report to find out whether Michael Oliver and his officials saw the incident, with the case going to the review panel that decides on unseen incidents if they did not.
Comprised of three ex-referees that do not confer or consult, they come back one-by-one with their decision with a unanimous view required for action to be taken.
It could lead Rojo to be hit with a three-match ban for violent conduct – a further blow to United with top scorer Zlatan Ibrahimovic serving the same suspension following retrospective action last week.
The striker was banned for catching Tyrone Mings with an elbow shortly after the Cherries defender landed on the back of his head, with his apparent stamp leading the FA to dish out a five-match ban for the Bournemouth man.
