​Man Utd striker Lukaku avoids FA sanctions

There will be no action taken against Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku for allegedly kicking out at Brighton defender Gaetan Bong, reports BBC Sport.

The alleged incident happened in United's 1-0 win on Saturday, but was not seen by referee Neil Swarbrick.

The Football Association referred it to three ex-Premier League referees to independently review on Monday.

They each had to agree it was a sending off offence for action to be taken and that was not the case.

The decision means the 24 year old Belgium international has escaped a three-match domestic ban.
