Manchester City star midfielder Yaya Toure can count himself lucky after escaping FA punishment for a kick in the back to Norwich striker Ricky Van Wolfswinkel.
Craig Bellamy was charged with violent conduct for his punch during Swansea v Cardiff.
Twitter was a little bemused by the FA’s lack of action regarding the Yaya Toure incident.
The Ivorian midfielder had, earlier this season, got away with a stamp on Olivier Giroud’s ankle.
Some of the best tweets can be seen below:
No charge for Yaya Toure? But … I thought … Intent … Everyone said intent. How strange.
