Man United will face Chelsea without Ibrahimovic after the Swedish striker was charged with violent conduct

FOOTBALL By Game Yetu | March 7th 2017
Ibrahimovic, Mings charged with violent conduct

Manchester United will be without Zlatan Ibrahimovic for their trip to Stamford Bridge to place Chelsea in the quarter-finals of the FA Cup.

The 35-year-old faces a three-match ban, meaning he'll miss the FA Cup fixture with Chelsea , as well as Premier League ties against Middlesbrough and West Brom.

Ibrahimovic and Bournemouth defender Tyrone Mings were charged with violent conduct on Monday over two incidents in Saturday's 1-1 draw.

Mings appeared to deliberately stamp on Ibrahimovic's head as he jumped over him late in the first half at Old Trafford and the Swedish striker seemed to retaliate moments later by elbowing the defender in the head.

Both players would ordinarily face three-game bans, but England's Football Association said in Mings's case the standard punishment was "clearly insufficient".

"Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Tyrone Mings have both been charged with alleged violent conduct following the Manchester United versus AFC Bournemouth game on Saturday," the FA said in a statement.

"The players were involved in two separate incidents in or around the 44th minute which were not seen by the match officials at the time but caught on video."
