Manchester United's Anthony Martial escapes 'kick' punishment - sources
MANCHESTER -- Anthony Martial has escaped punishment for an alleged kick on Huddersfield's Tommy Smith during Manchester United's 2-1 defeat at the John Smith's Stadium on Saturday, sources have told ESPN FC.
Martial appeared to kick out at the Huddersfield defender after he had caught him with a tackle by the touchline.
The incident was missed by referee Lee Mason, although both Martial and Smith were booked moments later after squaring up to each other following a different clash.
Sources told ESPN FC that the FA has reviewed footage of Martial's apparent kick but decided it did not warrant further investigation or referral to the disciplinary panel.
Martial was substituted at half-time with Huddersfield 2-0 up thanks to goals from Aaron Mooy and Laurent Depoitre.
Meanwhile, UEFA has punished Basel after their fans set off flares during the Champions League clash with United at Old Trafford on Sept. 12.
The Swiss club have been fined €12,000.
