It was the incident that had everyone talking as Manchester United clashed with Bournemouth last week.

How on earth did Tyrone Mings AND Zlatan Ibrahimovic escape red cards for what happened?

 

Turns out it didn’t go completely unnoticed, as the FA have handed the Bournemouth defender a five-match ban.

The punishment comes just a day after Ibrahimovic was served a three-match suspension for the elbow on Mings.

The 23-year-old was hit with a violent conduct charge that will see him miss games against West Ham, Swansea and Southampton.

Most concerning for the club is the fact that his last two games on the sideline are against heavyweights Liverpool and Chelsea.

Mings was sidelined for 12 months after suffering a serious knee injury in his Premier League debut and has only made 7 appearances this season.

The injury couldn’t have come at a worse time with Bournemouth sitting in 14th but only 5 points away from the drop zone.
