Neither the FA nor Aston Villa will take any further action against Tyrone Mings and Anwar El Ghazi over their clash at Villa Park.

Villa boss Dean Smith is content that the matter was addressed by the team in the dressing room at half-time, after the two team-mates came together during the 0-0 draw with West Ham, and the matter is now closed.

And because the incident was seen by the on-field official Mike Dean and reviewed by the VAR official at Stockley Park on the night, the FA is not able to take any retrospective action either.

FA rules state that a player can be sent off for violent conduct, even if that is directed at someone other than an opponent.

In this case, there was contact when El Ghazi pushed his head towards Mings, but Dean did not feel it was sufficiently aggressive to warrant a red card.

The referee paused the game to allow VAR time to review his decision, and the review concurred with his interpretation.
