This would come as bad news for The Manchester United manager “Jose Mourinho” who has just learnt that his star forward; Lukaku might be hit with a three game match ban for an incident that occurred in this weekends match after the striker appeared to have kicked out at Brighton’s Cameroonian.
Manchester United forward Romelu Lukaku is facing the threat of a three-match ban which would rule him out of meetings with City and Arsenal, according to reports circulating and this could spell a whole lot of doom for the Old Trafford outfit who’s results hasn’t  gone as planned recently.
The Belgian international is waiting to discover whether his actions during a Premier League clash with Brighton will see him stung by retrospective punishment.
During a feisty fought encounter at Old Trafford, Lukaku appeared to kick out at Brighton’s Cameroonian defender Gaetan Bong which the english FA strongly kicks against.
The ugly incident occurred at a corner which proved to be pivotal in the contest and generated many of the post-match talking points.
Lukaku who was brought in from Everton in the summer to fill the boots of an injured Ibrahimovic had already sparked controversy in the winning of the set-piece, with Brighton boss Chris Hughton questioning the decision of the match officials after the game.
It was also from that corner, which Brighton could only half clear, that an effort from Ashley Young deflected off the unfortunate Lewis Dunk to record the only goal.
But while fortune favoured United on the day, their luck could be about to change as they sweat on Lukaku’s involvement in upcoming fixtures.
Lukaku’s fate would be decided in the coming days as he is set to appeal the ban.
