Chelsea's Fernando Torres is not known for his aggressive antics on the field, but he certainly got riled up during his team's game against Tottenham at White Hart Lane.

This GIF shows Torres apparently clawing the face of Spurs defender Jan Vertonghen.

That episode earned him a yellow card. A second yellow and a red followed after an aerial challenge later in the second half.

Did he deserve to go?
