West Brom centre-back Jonas Olsson has escaped Football Association punishment following a clash which left West Ham goalkeeper Robert Green requiring smelling salts.

Green was caught by Olsson's elbow during Monday night's stalemate at Upton Park but referee Mark Halsey looked at the incident again and told the FA he would not have given a red card.

Hammers goalkeeper Green needed lengthy treatment and bit a small part of his tongue off after attempting to claim a cross which was headed against the crossbar by Shelton Martis.
