Aguero to face no action for challenge on Noble

Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero will not be retrospectively punished by the Football Association for his challenge on West Ham United midfielder Mark Noble during the game between the two sides on Saturday, reports ESPN.

There had been fears from City that their top scorer could be given a three-match ban, but the FA has confirmed that no action will be taken, meaning that he will be able to play a part in Sunday’s Manchester derby at the Etihad Stadium.

The tackle saw Aguero make a two-footed stamping motion, and went unspotted by referee Martin Atkinson, and prompted home boss Sam Allardyce to say afterwards: : “Mark was complaining about it at half-time. It was a dangerous tackle and the referee was right in front of it.”

Aguero has a terrific record against neighbours United, scoring five goals in his last six games against them. He has also been in excellent form in recent weeks, scoring five goals in two games including all four in the 4-1 victory over Tottenham.
