​FA look into Aston Villa defender Mings stamp on Oliviera

The Football Association will investigate an incident between Tyrone Mings and Nelson Oliveira.

Mings was caught stamping on Oliveira as the two tangled in a game between Aston Villa and Reading.

Oliveira suffered major facial damage, having to go through surgery.

Reading tweeted after the game saying: "Nélson Oliveira has had surgery and is recovering well."

Mings said on the platform: "Feel awfully sorry to Oliveira, I hope he is ok."

It is not the first incident for Mings, who was suspended for five games for a similar incident with Zlatan Ibrahimovic in the Premier League in 2017.
