Man Utd defender Evans: Chelsea's Torres dived. He deserved red

Manchester United defender Jonny Evans insists Chelsea striker Fernando Torres took a dive on Sunday.

Torres was sent off after going down under Evans' challenge in the second-half of United's 3-2 win.

"At the time I didn't feel like I'd made contact," he said. "I've seen it again and there was a bit of contact but I didn't feel like it was enough to bring him down. I think he probably realised he wasn't getting the ball, he's gone down and I think the referee's made the right decision and sent him off."
