Man Utd fined for seven bookings
Edwin van der Sar is booked
Van der Sar was booked for protesting against the Spurs goal
Manchester United have incurred an automatic 25,000 fine from the Football Association for having seven players booked against Tottenham.

Edwin van der Sar, Cristiano Ronaldo, Wes Brown, Nani, Nemanja Vidic, Wayne Rooney and Carlos Tevez were all booked in Saturday's 1-1 draw.

The fine is imposed any time a team gets six or more yellow cards.

If six or more United stars are booked again in a single game this season then the club will be fined 50,000.

However, United will not face any disciplinary action after a number of players remonstrated with the assistant referee after Tottenham's goal.

606: DEBATE

Rio Ferdinand has defended his actions after he and several team-mates confronted the linesman claiming Jermaine Jenas had handled in the build-up to Dimitar Berbatov's goal.

Ferdinand told the Manchester Evening News: "I thought they were fortunate with their goal. It was handball and how the linesman didn't see it I will never know.

"I was behind it and I could see it and I don't know how the linesman didn't. That's why I was remonstrating with him."
