Burnley Football Club can confirm that the FA will be taking no retrospective action against Ashley Barnes for the incident involving Nemanja Matic.
The FA tweeted to explain the decision: "In the vast majority of challenges for the ball, no retrospective action is taken as the incident has been seen by the match officials.
"Retrospective action was introduced as a deterrent for ‘off the ball incidents’ [e.g. kicks, stamps etc.] committed out of sight of officials.
"The whole game is in agreement that, in vast majority of cases, match officials are best-placed to deal with incidents to avoid re-refereeing.
"In line with this rationale, FA confirm no further action in relation to Ashley Barnes as incident was seen by the officials."
