CONFIRMED. Sadio Mane will face against Manchester City

Sadio Mane has escaped FA action after appearing to put his hands round Arsenal defender Stephan Lichtsteiner's neck. The FA has confirmed that Liverpool’s Sadio Mane won’t face any action after an alleged altercation with Arsenal’s Stephan Lichtsteiner.
The incident happened during the first half of the Liverpool - Arsenal game. Mane reportedly was elbowed in the face by Swiss international. After that, the Liverpool winger put his hands around the neck of the Swiss for a second or two.
Referee Michael Oliver saw the incident, stopped the game and awarded a free-kick, so most probably Mane will not face any retrospective punishment as it already was in the form of a free-kick. The Senegalese is allowed to play against Man City on January 3.
