Argentina international Mascherano was sent off for picking up two cautions during the Barclays Premier League game against Manchester United at Old Trafford on Sunday - the second for dissent towards the match official.

Ref Steve Bennett's report is understood to make a point of mentioning the time it took an angry Mascherano to leave the pitch.

A decision from the FA is expected this afternoon, which is likely to result in a charge and could lead to an extended ban for the player.
