Zlatan accepts 3 match violent conduct ban for throwing an elbow into Tyrone Mings' head and will miss Chelsea game.

Tyrone yet to respond to his charge for jumping onto the side of Zlatan's head - accidentally (allegedly).

Looks like Mings might get a bigger ban as the FA recommend that a 3 game ban isn't sufficient.

Surely not a case of bigger club being treated more lenient shock?

All fouls are classified by he FA and a stamp on the head is classed as a worse offense than an elbow. 

Mings challenge was awful and he should be banned for a long long time. Zlatans was an elbow that you see in every game.

What I found funny was the media questions after

"What did you say to Mings before the corner"

If Zlatan actually answered that then people would cry their little eyes out because football isn't actually the gentleman sport people stupidly pretend it is. 

I bet he would have told him that elbow was coming. And it's no shock horror. It's just what goes on. Hardly matches up to Bellew vs Haye does it? 

Zlatan just delivered an equaliser. You'd expect that for standing on his head, no?

Nope. There's plenty of room for debate and I still think Mings should be charged for dangerous play, but I'm amazed that so many people seem to be 100% convinced it was deliberate. Mings never looks down at Ibrahimovic. Unless he's telepathic, that's dangerous, but not deliberate.

yep I also think he gets a bump off Rooney and I think if he had stamped on Ibra's head there would be no way he could have continued to play, the impact at that speed would have been damaging

You don't see deliberate elbows in the face in every game thankfully. The clenched fist is usually a give away, according to Dermot Gallagher. It was as deliberate an elbow as you are likely to see. Mings' stamp is more difficult. It looks suspicious, but you just can't be sure.

Its not clear which is why i think its harsh to be suggesting giving him a bigger punishment that Zlatan, whos clearly was deliberate.
