There was an incident towards the end of the match between Marcos Rojo and Eden Hazard that looked a bit weird while watching live, and as it turns out, there was a good reason for that. Marcos Rojo stamped on Hazard as the Chelsea man was down on the ground. WTF.

It looks ever worse from the reverse angle.

Doesn’t get much clearer than that one, stepping short on purpose and right into the chest of Hazard.
Rojo stamp on Hazard far more clear cut than Mings - surely now gets 5-game ban— Matt Law (@Matt_Law_DT) March 13, 2017
Tyrone Mings of Bournemouth was slapped with a five-match ban for his stamp on Zlatan Ibrahimovic last weekend. Would certainly expect Rojo to get a similar punishment from The FA, and that’s before considering that he somehow made it through the entire match without even a booking despite committing several yellow card-worthy challenges.
Mourinho of course still had the temerity to complain about the referee’s performance. Oliver certainly let plenty of fouls go, but followed through in the one instance he actually drew the line on the serial fouling of Hazard.
In any case, happy trails, Marcos Rojo and Manchester United. We’re going to Wembley!
