Mohamed Salah will not face disciplinary action for his clash with Stoke’s Bruno Martins Indi at the weekend, Press Association Sport understands.
The Liverpool forward flicked an arm out at the Potters defender off the ball during Saturday’s goalless draw at Anfield, but the incident was not seen by referee Andre Marriner.
A three-man panel of ex-referees reviewed the incident and decided it did not qualify as an act of violent conduct.
Salah, the Premier League’s top scorer this term, could have been looking at a three-match ban from the Football Association had they decided differently.
Liverpool sit six points clear of fifth-placed Chelsea, who have a game in hand, and Salah will hope to secure a victory for the Reds which will guarantee their place in the Champions League group stages next season.
The Egypt international has been in stunning form this term, scoring 43 goals in 48 appearances in all competitions, and has already collected the PFA player of the year award.
The 25-year-old looks set to add to his individual accolades, with the forward being the front-runner to win the Football Writers’ Association footballer of the year award on Tuesday.
