Newcastle defender Habib Beye could have his controversial dismissal investigated by the FA dependent on referee Rob Styles report. The 31-year-old Senegal international's was dismissed for a challenge on Manchester City star Robinho in Monday night's 2-2 draw at St James' Park.

Styles awarded a penalty and produced the red card, although replays showed Beye had played the ball.

Beye said: "For me, that was the start of my season and I am devastated by the decision.

"I wouldn't have made the tackle if I didn't think I could have got the ball, and that's why I am so disappointed.

"It was my first game back for some time after my injury, and to be sent off so early is very disappointing."
