Wherever you stand on whether Fernando Torres should have been given a second yellow card for diving this afternoon, there can be little disagreement with the fact Torres should have received his marching orders earlier on for this brutal foul on Tom Cleverley.
This incident took place in the first half and had Cleverley gone to ground and rolled around on the floor with a pained expression (as Torres did just before he got sent off) it would have been an easy red card for the referee to produce.
