Man Utd ace Van Persie avoids FA ban

Manchester United ace Robin van Persie has avoided FA action over his clash with Newcastle United midfielder Yohan Cabaye.

PA Sport says match referee Howard Webb did not see the incident during the game, but on reviewing television evidence he did not deem it worthy of a sending-off offence, so no further action will be taken.

Newcastle manager Alan Pardew said after the game that he felt the incident warranted further investigation.
