Liverpool and United escape FA action

The FA have confirmed that they will not take any action against Manchester United or Liverpool after their heated clash at Old Trafford on Saturday.

The game between the Premier League giants took added significance as it was the first time that Luis Suarez and Patrice Evra had gone head-to-head since the Reds striker was found guilty of racial abuse against the France international.

Suarez did not help his case by refusing to shake Evra’s hand in the build up to the match, which added spice to the fixture.

There was also believed to be a fracas in the tunnel at half time and full time, whilst Evra celebrated in front of Suarez after the game ended 2-1 in the hosts’ favour.

Despite a number of unsavoury incidents, Sky Sports state that the FA have confirmed that there will be no further disciplinary action brought against either side, in a bid to end the conflict that has blighted the sport over the last number of months.

Meanwhile, Kenny Dalglish and Suarez have since apologised for their actions after the game, with club sponsors Standard Chartered believed to be disappointed with the duo’s conduct.

“We were very disappointed by Saturday’s incident and have discussed our concerns with the club,” a statement made by the investment firm published in The Daily Mail reads.
