The Argentine centre-back lost his temper on several occasions during the FA Cup quarter-final clash with Chelsea and he also clashed with Diego Costa on more than one occasion.

During the high-octane clash between the two Premier League giants there were a number of serious challenges but the FA would now shift their attention to Rojo.

Hazard went down to the ground after being clipped by Rojo, who appeared to have stamped on the Belgian superstar while he was trying to jump over him.

And after the recent hullabaloo due to Tyrone Mings’ head stamp on Ibrahimovic, it is believed that the FA would now hand Rojo some serious punishment.
