Liverpool's Mohamed Salah avoids season-ending ban after Stoke outburst
Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah has escaped a season-ending ban following an incident with Stoke City star Bruno Martins Indi.
Salah has been the best player in the Premier League this season but he is just one goal off becoming the highest scoring player in a single season.
Though, there was much talk this week that his dream of doing that could have been cut short in dramatic fashion when he stretched his arm out into the face of Stoke defender Martins Indi.

It also quells any debate whether Salah should get a 3-match ban for violent conduct! This pic doesn’t do it justice! pic.twitter.com/dH0Vx5QYTP
That lead to suggestions that the player would face a three-match ban as the outburst certainly did seem to be pretty convincing. Though, much to the surprise of everyone on Monday, it seems as though the player has escaped a three-match ban and will be able to continue his charge to score the most goals in a Premier League season.
That means he will be free to play in the last two games which come in the form of Chelsea and Brighton, with the club looking to secure a spot in the top four and confirming their place in the Champions League next season.
