Liverpool superstar Mohamed Salah might be banned for the rest of the season if found guilty of the disciplinary case levelled against him.

The 25-year-old is currently being investigated by the English FA after his row with Stoke City defender Bruno Martins Indi in last Saturday’s Premier League fixture at Anfield which ended in a barren draw.

Salah was sighted aiming a fist at the Dutch defender in the game but got away with it moments before the referee sounded the half time whistle.

The case is expected to be treated by a three-man panel of former referees to decide whether his offence deserved a red card or not.

English FA were alerted on social media by the clips of the incident where the Egyptian superstar appears to flail a balled hand at Stoke's defender near the half-way line.

Under FA rules, potential violent conduct incidents missed by the officials are referred to the panel of former whistlers, who must unanimously agree if it was a sending off.

In a different story, West Bromwich Albion's Ahmed Hegazi got lucky by avoiding disciplinary action after the three former refs - who view all referred incident separately - failed to agree he should have received a red card for an alleged punch on Liverpool's Danny Ings.

Meanwhile, if he gets suspended, then it will goodbye to his chances of scoring the goal he needs to become the first player to score 32 goals in 38 games in a single Premier League season.

Salah has scored 31 goals already in 34 EPL matches, while his goal tally for the season stands at 43 in all competitions.

He joined Liverpool last summer in the summer of 2017 from AS Roma €42 million and has helped the Reds to the semi final of this year’s Champions League tourney.
