Were Lukaku found guilty of violent conduct, the Belgian striker would miss United's next three Premier League matches - away matches at Watford and Arsenal followed by the Manchester derby on December 10, live on Sky Sports.

The 24-year-old endured another frustrating outing on Saturday, when United eked out a 1-0 home win against newly-promoted Brighton.

However, fellow former Premier League and Federation Internationale de Football Association referee Dermot Gallagher said he "would be surprised" if the 24-year-old had received a retrospective punishment.

"The act has to be one of violence or brutality. This appears to be one of petulance". In 5 full Premier League seasons, he has scored 93 league goals, second only to Manchester City's Sergio Aguero.

Although still comfortably United's top scorer with 12 goals to his name in 20 appearances across all competitions to date, the Belgium worldwide, a £75m ($100.3m) summer arrival from Everton, has now netted in only one of his last 10 appearances at club level - a late effort in the 4-1 comeback defeat of Newcastle United on 18 November.

He wrote in his column for the Daily Mail: "If Jose Mourinho wants to get Romelu Lukaku firing again, he needs his £75-million striker to reach boiling point".

"In the last minute he was fighting and running back like he was in the first minute". The shot ended up finding the back of the net.

"Some are capable of going to the limit of their efforts but others, even with a lot of talent, are not able to".

It's also important for Lukaku to show it now that Zlatan Ibrahimovic has returned to the first team and Mourinho has a strong alternative to replace him with in the starting lineup.
