FA Action Against Van Persie?

Alan Pardew has called on the Football Association to take action against Manchester United striker Robin van Persie after he elbowed Yohan Cabaye.

Alan Pardew has called on the Football Association to take action against Manchester United striker Robin van Persie after a bruising Barclays Premier League clash.  It was a game marred by another "I'm The Star Of The Show" performance from referee Howard Webb, as he clocked up eight bookings.

But it left Pardew fuming as a late off-the-ball clash between the Dutchman and France international Cabaye which went unseen by Webb.

Alan Pardew: "He has looked at Yohan and he has elbowed him, and I think that perhaps needs to be looked at, if I am honest.

"There's a bit of history from last year and I don't know if Robin has been caught up in that, but that was just a little bit unsavoury.

"I actually thought Yohan wouldn't have gone down if he hadn't done something.

"I didn't see it myself, but I have obviously seen it on the replay and it looks like he has looked at him and put his elbow there."

Potentially faces a three-game ban.
