FA make decision on Salah’s clash with Martins-Indi

Mo Salah has escaped punishment for his clash with Stoke’s Bruno Martins-Indi during Saturday’s goalless draw.

The Liverpool star appeared to aim a punch at his opponent but Mirror Sport understands the Egyptian will not face retrospective action.

Salah drew a blank at Anfield, failing to add to his incredible 43-goal tally in pursuit of the outright record number of goals in a season by a Liverpool forward.

A glaring miss from a one-on-one situation prompted shock from those watching before a clash with Martin-Indi potentially put his availability in doubt for the crucial Chelsea clash next weekend.

With the Blues closing to within six points, should they win their game in hand, it will allow them to draw level with Jurgen Klopp’s side should they win their clash at Stamford Bridge.

The news will also be a relief to Salah in his push to beat Harry Kane to the golden boot – currently ahead by five goals.

Salah sits on 31 Premier League goals but has 12 more in all competitions, while Kane has struck 26 times in the top flight so far this term.

Meanwhile Islam Slimani has been charged by The FA with violent conduct after Newcastle’s 1-0 defeat to West Brom on Saturday.
