Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku avoids Premier League suspension

Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku avoids Premier League suspension

Having Ibrahimovic back and available for United is a bonus, especially as there is a possibility of Lukaku picking up a suspension for tangling with Brighton's Gaetan Bong at the weekend.

That would mean he would sit out of the visit to Watford tomorrow, before Arsenal at the Emirates on Saturday and the huge Manchester derby eight days later.

Lukaku appeared to kick out twice at Bong during the second half of the 1-0 win over Brighton at Old Trafford on Saturday.

"As soon as I saw it, I thought they will probably look at it. Some are capable of going to the limit of their efforts but others, even with a lot of talent, are not able to".

Till date, the Belgian has scored 12 goals in 20 games but has only managed one goal in in his last 10 appearances. So Romelu, for me, [is] fantastic.




Former Premier League referee Dermot Gallagher "would be surprised" if Romelu Lukaku is handed a three-game ban after appearing to kick out at Brighton's Gaetan Bong. "Didn't score, I don't care".

The incident was missed by the officials during the game.

"Against Watford I was very upset with Watford's first goal after some guy sent (Anthony) Martial to the hospital and the referee let it go, that is the reason why I was very, very upset at Watford", he added.

Manager Marco Silva continues to be linked with the managerial vacancy at Everton, having won plenty of admirers during his brief stint with Hull last season and his fledgling tenure at Watford.

The Red Devils are perhaps the only team who can overcome them this season, but if they are to close that gap, they need all of their players at the top of their game.
