Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand was pleased to be cleared by the FA after his clash with Chelsea striker Fernando Torres on Sunday.

The FA determined that they would take no retrospective action against the United defender and he will be available for the quarter-final replay, whenever it is played.

Ferdinand tweeted after the let-off on Tuesday afternoon: "My timeline is full of bitter people...come on guys we are all alive, enjoy each day + give thanks! We on the home run #EPL let's do this."
