Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku avoids Premier League suspension

The ball made its way outside the 18 as Lukaku maneuvered toward an onside position after swinging his right and then left leg at Bong, who appears to block a very sensitive region with his hand.

As a result, a panel of three former elite referees reviewed the footage independently of one another to advise whether they deemed it a sending off offence.

However, his boss Jose Mourinho has no issues with the Belgian hitman's lack of goals after he scored 11 in his first 10 matches following his £75 million (S$134.4m) move from Everton in July.

"As soon as I saw it, I thought they will probably look at it".

They said,"BREAKING: @RomeluLukaku9 will face no further action from the @FA for allegedly kicking out at @OfficialBHAFC defender Gaetan Bong at Old Trafford on Saturday - Sky sources". The shot ended up finding the back of the net.

"Some guys are capable to go into the limits of their efforts and some others guys even with a lot of talent, they don't manage to do that, so Romelu, for me, fantastic".

Lukaku has mustered just one goal in his past 10 matches for United following an impressive start to life at Old Trafford, but Mourinho refuses to criticise the striker.

Lukaku could have missed miss games against Watford, Arsenal and Manchester City if he was charged with violent conduct and given a three-game ban. "He didn't score, but I don't care".

But Mourinho focused on his workrate in a Man United shirt.

It's also important for Lukaku to show it now that Zlatan Ibrahimovic has returned to the first team and Mourinho has a strong alternative to replace him with in the starting lineup.
