Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand faces a disciplinary probe after clashing with Chelsea striker Fernando Torres last night.

The centre back, touted for a recall to Roy Hodgson's England squad, went in for a challenge with Torres and after the pair had got up, barged him with his forearm and kicked his achilles while the referee was looking the other way.

Torres fell to the ground in a heap and Ferdinand ushered the Spaniard back to his feet.

The FA Cup tie finished 2-2.
