Man United midfield star facing suspension following West Ham incident

Manchester United could see Bastian Schweinsteiger given a three-match ban for hitting out at West Ham United star Winston Reid, Mirror reports.

The 31-year-old was seen pushing his forearm into the throat of the centre-back, but the incident was missed by referee Mark Clattenburg as well his linesmen.

This means if the English FA review the footage and find the Germany international guilty, he could face a three match ban.

Should this be the outcome, Schweinsteiger will be in line to miss matches against Bournemouth, Norwich City, as well as Stoke City.

Both Reid along with Hammers boss Slaven Bilic came out to blast the former Bayern Munich star for his actions as they await the results from the FA.

Teammate Marouane Fellaini was also lucky to escape any sort of punishment when he was seen by the officials stomping on James Tomkins when going in for a late tackle.

The Red Devils are now preparing for a vital Champions League clash away to Wolfsburg where they must pick up all three points to ensure progression.
