Chelsea v Manchester United – Capital One Cup

Chelsea ended their Premier League tie with Man Utd with only nine players following the dismissals of Torres and Branislav Ivanovic, while Manchester United earned three points with a 3-2 victory.

Torres was sent off under controversial circumstances, with the Chelsea star receiving a second yellow card from referee Mark Clattenburg, after the Spaniard was hit ground as a result of a incident involving Manchester United defender Jonny Evans.

Replays appeared to show Evans get a touch on the shin of Torres, which resulted in the forward falling to the ground, but Man Utd boss, Sir Alex Ferguson does not believe it was hefty enough to send the Spainard tumbling.

"I thought he went down. I think Jonny may have just caught him a little bit," remarked Ferguson. "But you could carry on running, which he could have done, but he chose to go down.

"He could have carried on and scored, that's what I can't understand. And he's been already booked, so it's his own fault."

Evans says Clattenburg was right in his call.

"I didn't feel like it was enough to bring him down," said the Manchester United centre-back.

"He probably realised he wasn't getting the ball and I think the referee's made the right decision in sending him off."

Chelsea will fight to redeem themselves on Wednesday in their Capital One Cup tie against Man Utd.
