Manchester United's Romelu Lukaku facing no disciplinary action for Gaetan Bong clash

The incident allegedly happened during United's 1-0 win on Saturday, but referee Neil Swarbrick took no action.

Though his goalscoring form has slowed for United bar last week's strike against Newcastle United, the 24-year-old remains a vital part of Jose Mourinho's attack, and the above decision is sure to come as a relief to the manager.

Mourinho is unconcerned about such a drought, however, praising Lukaku's work ethic after newly-promoted Brighton provided what he described as probably the toughest test his second-place team have had all season.

"Some guys are capable to go into the limits of their efforts and some other guys even with a lot of talent, they don't manage to do that". So Romelu, for me, was fantastic. "Didn't score, I don't care".

The striker could also miss league matches against Watford and Arsenal. And unfortunately not every player is the same.

Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku can breath down now as The Association of retired referees has cleared him of all charges labeled against him for allegedly kicking Brighton defender Gaetan Bong.

He said on Twitter: "We didn't see it at the time".

"We will do our best to get a good result at home in front of our fans".
