Zlatan Ibrahimovic should miss FA Cup match against Chelsea

Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Tyrone Mings have both been charged with alleged violent conduct by England's FA following separate incidents during Manchester United and Bournemouth's 1-1 draw in the Premier League on Saturday.

Jose Mourinho, however will resist hitting the Swede in the pocket if his man is now brought up on a charge and found guilty.

The 35-year-old striker has been charged with violent conduct by the Football Association after elbowing Bournemouth's Tyrone Mings during Manchester United's 1-1 draw with the Cherries on Saturday.

After a number of tussles in the first period, Mings was seen to stamp on the head of Ibrahimovic, although the centre-back insisted after the match that the incident was purely an accident.

Moments later the duo leapt to meet a cross at the back post and Ibrahimovic's right elbow caught Mings on the cheek.

The FA now look certain to hand the pair three-match bans, with McGrath suggesting Mings could face stronger punishment after his rash challenge. Should the 31-year-old start as a nine once more, it would give the manager the chance to play both Martial and Rashford in wide positions should he need greater pace on the flanks.

In response, Ibrahimovic threw his elbow into the head of the Englishman while challenging for a corner, although neither player were sent off by referee Kevin Friend during the controversial turn of events.

The official submitted his report to the FA on Monday morning and admitted he had not seen them.

That run includes an FA Cup quarter-final against Chelsea next Monday, not to mention the Premier League fixtures against Middlesbrough and West Bromwich Albion on March 19 and April 1, respectively.

"In my situation, I jump up, I jump high and at the same time I protect myself and, unlucky, he jumps into me".

"Each referee panel member will review the video footage independently of one another to determine whether they consider it a sending-off offence".

When asked about the possibility of retrospective action after the game at the weekend, Ibrahimovic had said: "I respect every decision".
