Stoke midfielder Glenn Whelan will not face disciplinary action over his tackle on Javi Garcia at the weekend.

Meanwhile, City midfielder Gareth Barry claims referee Webb told him he did not get a good view of Whelan's controversial tackle. Barry said: "I think the referee said at the time - I spoke to him and he said he didn't have the right angle on it but Javi, in the changing room, said the player went in with both feet and caught his ankle so I think they showed that on TV too." He added: "I don't want to speak badly against Glenn Whelan. He's a great pro and I'm sure he went for the ball."
