Manchester United's Ashley Young banned for three matches

Man Utd's Young facing possible ban after elbow v Southampton

Man Utd's Young facing possible ban after elbow v Southampton

Halsey wrote for The Sun: "Young is facing a retrospective three-match ban for this elbow on Tadic".

Ashley Young has been suspended for three games by the FA after admitted a charge of violent conduct.

Although match referee Craig Pawson missed the indiscretion when it happened, television cameras captured Young elbowing Southampton midfielder Dusan Tadic in the stomach.

"Yes, he elbowed me and I asked him, "Why did you do this?".

"He accepted a violent conduct charge following an off-the-ball incident during yesterday's game against Southampton, but argued the suspension was excessive", the FA said in a statement.

The 32-year-old wing-back will miss the New Year's Day match at Everton plus home games with Derby [in the FA Cup] and Stoke. I didn't really understand.

Young's absence could be costly given Manchester United's recent form. I can fall down but it was really odd because I didn't expect that from him'.

United have dropped to third in the Premier League after three successive draws and were beaten at Bristol City in the Carabao Cup on 20 December.

Another player nearly certain to miss a few games is Ashely Young following his altercation with Dusan Tadic.

United also have Romelu Lukaku and Zlatan Ibrahimovic injuries to contend with as they aim to catch Manchester City at the top of the table and, perhaps more realistically, avoid being overtaken by the chasing pack of Liverpool, Arsenal and Tottenham.
