Lukaku facing three-match ban, Manchester United fans react

Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku has struggled in front of goal of late, scoring just once in his last 10 matches.

It is stark contrast to the start of the season when the Belgian found the back of the net 11 times in his first 10 outings.

Lukaku is not in scintillating form at the moment, but he may not have a chance to rectify his goalscoring antics any time soon.

The Daily Mail reports that the United hitman could be issued with a three-match ban for an incident involving Brighton defender Gaetan Bong on Saturday afternoon.

Video footage showed the 24-year-old appearing to kick out at Bong with his right foot and then hitting him with his left.

The incident was not spotted by referee Neil Swarbrick at the time, but Lukaku could face retrospective action for violent conduct, which carries an automatic three-match ban.

If found guilty, the striker will miss Premier League games against Watford and Arsenal, as well as the derby clash against table-toppers Manchester City.

United fans have been tweeting their thoughts on the potential ban, and some would not miss him.
