Romelu Lukaku: Manchester United striker should have been banned - Ian Wright

Romelu Lukaku: Manchester United striker should have been banned - Ian Wright

Romelu Lukaku was caught on video clearly attempting to kick an opponent twice.

The 24-year-old has more often made a decisive impact in the final third this term, with his eight goals in 13 Premier League matches, but Mourinho was also satisfied by Lukaku's work rate and defensive contribution as Chris Hughton's side made it hard for United in the 1-0 win.

However, Gallagher admits he would be surprised if Lukaku is given retrospective punishment for an incident against Brighton on Saturday.

Mourinho's side, now second in the league, remain eight points behind leaders Manchester City, who are unbeaten with 37 points after 13 matches.

A charge of violent conduct, if proven, would have carried a three-match domestic ban, meaning that Lukaku was in danger of missing Tuesday [28 November] night's trip to Watford and the weekend meeting with Arsenal in addition to the Manchester derby against runaway leaders City at Old Trafford on 10 December.

Lukaku has made an impressive start to life at United following his £90m summer switch from Everton, plundering 12 goals in all competitions to be their leading scorer.

Swarbrick's report on the match will be studied by the Football Association.

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

"The way Romelu wins the corner for the goal, the way Romelu ends the game-making tackles in the left-back position - that is the mentality I want".

Fortunately for him, he will get another chance today, should he play against Watford. Players are men, men are different. "Didn't score, I don't care".
