Romelu Lukaku has scored one goal in his last 10 matches for Manchester United

Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku will face no action for allegedly kicking out at Brighton defender Gaetan Bong.

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 Lukaku has avoided a three-match domestic ban which would have seen him miss league games against Watford, Arsenal and Manchester City.

The Belgium international, 24, moved to United in the summer from Everton and scored 10 goals in his first nine outings for the Old Trafford club.

However, Lukaku has scored just once in his last 10 games for the club.

Footballers usually throw their jersey to fans at the final whistle but Juventus goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon stunned one supporter by giving him his shorts after Wednesday’s Champions League draw against Barcelona.

Barcelona advanced to the last 16 after the 0-0 draw in Turin but Juventus remain second in the group and can secure their qualification with victory at Olympiakos on December 5.
