Diafra Sakho will not face retrospective punishment from the FA after allegedly headbutting Luke Shaw. The Manchester United left back was left with a black eye after an off the ball incident but, after reviewing video footage, the offence wasn’t deemed serious enough to warrant a red card had the referee seen it at the time.
