Belgium Striker Romelu Lukaku facing no disciplinary action for Gaetan Bong clash

Romelu Lukaku is in the clear over his alleged kick aimed at Brighton's Gaetan Bong

Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku will face no further action for his clash with Brighton's Gaetan Bong on Saturday.

Lukaku appeared to kick out at Bong on two occasions just before Ashley Young's shot deflected off Lewis Dunk for what proved to be the winning goal in United's 1-0 win at Old Trafford

The Belgium international was left sweating on possible retrospective action as the incident was missed by referee Neil Swarbrick and his team of assistants.

However, the panel could not agree that an offence was committed and Lukaku therefore avoids what could have been a three-game ban for violent conduct
