The Football Association (FA) confirmed Sunday they will be examining TV footage of the post-match bust-up between Manchester United players and Chelsea staff.
United substitutes became embroiled in a scuffle with Stamford Bridge groundstaff and stewards in the warm-down following Saturday's 2-1 defeat.
FA spokesman Andrin Cooper said: “This will have nothing to do with the referee's report. He would have been in his dressing room a long way from the incident.
“But we will obviously be asking Chelsea to let us see their CCTV footage of the incident.”
Chelsea issued a statement after the game saying they would be “reviewing the relevant footage and will be considering the appropriate course of action”.
United have also asked to see the pictures.
Patrice Evra, Paul Scholes, John O'Shea, Gerard Pique and Gary Neville were taking part in the warm-down on the pitch when they were asked to move by Chelsea groundstaff.
The row erupted when the players refused to come off the pitch and an altercation broke out between stewards, groundstaff and the United players.
