According The Sun’s Dan King, Moussa Sissoko may now be facing a three-match ban after being shown to have trodden on Kenedy’s calf during Tottenham’s 2-1 win at St James’ Park on Saturday.
The incident occurred in the 43rd minute of the first half and it seems the Frenchmen could face now face retrospective action after the alleged ‘stamp’ was missed by referee Martin Atkinson.
Here’s a clip of the incident:

One thing to note about this; whether he meant it or not, you can almost guarantee that Jonjo Shelvey would’ve been shown red had he done it! There’s not actually that much between this and Jonjo’s stamp on Dele Alli this time last year.
Time will tell if he faces any retrospective action, but it was easily avoidable and very clumsy – even if there was no malice behind it from Moussa.
Do you think he should’ve seen red for this?
