Sorensen: Hutton's boot nearly blinded me

Thomas Sorensen has hit out at Tottenham Hotspur full-back Alan Hutton after his challenge on the Stoke City keeper almost cost him the sight in his right eye.

The Danish keeper was substituted during the second half of Stoke's 2-1 win over Spurs on Sunday following a clash with Hutton which left Sorensen with blood pouring from a cut to the eye socket inflicted by a stray boot.

''It was a millimetre off me losing my sight. I have been sewn up in the eye socket but it is miraculous there's no more damage. We are at a stage where it is not funny any more,'' Sorensen said, who is remains angry with the Scottish international because he believes the collision was preventable.

''He could have avoided hitting me. He had no chance to reach the ball but he still threw himself into it, leading with his studs. The doctor has done a very good job so my face is not totally destroyed.''

Hutton was booked for the challenge and as such is not expected to face any further investigation because the referee dealt with the incident at the time.

Meanwhile, Tottenham defender Michael Dawson has denied the Football Association charge of improper conduct he received on Tuesday and requested a personal hearing.

Dawson reacted angrily to referee Lee Mason when he sent off the central defender in stoppage-time of the defeat by Stoke on Sunday for a dangerous tackle on Mamady Sidibe.

Dawson received an automatic three-match ban for the dismissal but could now face an increased ban if the FA charge is upheld.
