Liverpool winger Mohamed Salah could face a three-match ban in the Premier League following the Egyptian attacker’s clash with Bruno Martins Indi.

The former Chelsea star appeared to throw a punch at the Stoke City defender during Liverpool’s 0-0 draw against the Potters at Anfield on Saturday.


Referee Andre Marriner took no action during the incident, and the video footage will be viewed by three a three-man panel to make the final decision.

If he is found guilty, the 25-year-old would be banned for three domestic games, including two remaining for this season and the first of next season.


Former Premier League referee Mark Halsey is confident that the PFA Player of the Year will escape action from the FA rules.

“Law 12 striking or attempting to strike an opponent is an act of violent conduct and punishable by a red card,” said Halsey.

“Last week [Ahmed] Hegazi got away with punching Danny Ings, surprisingly. So I don’t think any action will be taken here.”


The Egypt international, who joined Liverpool last summer from AS Roma, is currently the Premier League top scorer with 31 goals.
