Chelsea’s Torres Facing Four-Match Ban
Blues manager Jose Mourinho accused Tottenham’s Jan Vertonghen of conning ref Mike Dean by staying down and implying he had been elbowed by Torres in an aerial challenge that saw Dean show the Spaniard his second yellow card.
But Torres is now poised to fall foul of FA beaks over his initial spat with Vertonghen during Saturday’s 1-1 draw, in which he appeared to scratch and scrape at the defender’s face.
Despite the video evidence showing there was no contact with the Belgian’s face in the incident that sparked his dismissal, Torres has no right of appeal under FA rules.
