The FA plan to study video evidence of Liverpool midfielder Javier Mascherano's dismissal at Manchester United on Sunday.

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.
