Even the stars face consequences

The list of punishments for the weekend's actions are starting to come out.

Rio Ferdinand faces a violent-conduct charge from the FA after smacking a Hull City dude. Ronaldo will be banned for the nose-breaking strike (deemed a "dangerous play that caused harm") that spoiled his brace-netting night.

Lastly, Inter's Wesley Sneijder got sent off for verbally abusing a ref and some sarcastic applause.

Poor guy. Didn't even get to smack anyone for his fine/suspension.
