Garcia required treatment and later had words with referee Howard Webb.
David Platt: "I haven't seen it so I can't comment on it. Somebody said it wasn't good. But the referee was right there and had a good view of it."
Stoke manager Tony Pulis also said he did not have a clear view of the incident.
Pulis said: "I haven't seen the challenge, I will have a look at it."
