Huddlestone escapes censure

The midfielder seemed to put his foot on the striker during the 4-2 defeat, but referee Chris Foy confirmed that match officials did see the incident, and that therefore there are no grounds for further action against the player.

Fifa rules stipulate that the FA is not allowed to use video evidence to try the case retrospectively in such circumstances.

Manager Harry Redknapp has spoken out in defence of the player following an incident against FC Twente in the Champions League, when he appeared to elbow an opponent.
