Romelu Lukaku to miss Manchester derby through suspension?

Romelu Lukaku to miss Manchester derby through suspension?

Video footage showed Lukaku appearing to kick out at Bong following a tussle between the pair at the 66th-minute corner from which Ashley Young scored United's deflected victor in the 1-0 victory.

The incident, spotted during Ashley Young's winning goal on Saturday, attracted much attention.

I thought the ban looked to be a sure thing after seeing the incident which clearly shows the Belgian global forward lashing out at the Brighton defender Gaetan Bong just before Ashley Ypung┬┤s very fortunate deflected victor.

Lukaku won't be suspended, according to Simon Peach of the Press Association.

The FA referred the incident to three former Premier League referees to independently review on Monday. All three had to agree that the action warranted a red card offence in order for a retroactive ban to be implemented.

Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku could miss his side's derby with leaders Manchester City after seemingly kicking out at Brighton & Hove Albion defender Gaetan Bong.

The 24-year-old has scored just once in his last 10 games but Mourinho believes he offers much more than goals on the pitch, inspiring his team-mates to follow his lead and work harder.
