Brighton and Hove Albion striker Tomer Hemed will serve a three-match ban for an alleged stamp on Newcastle’s DeAndre Yedlin in the final minute of the Seagulls 1-0 win on Sunday.
The incident went largely unnoticed at the time but was exacerbated by the claims of an NBC Sport commentator during the match and afterward.
Albion have Glenn Murray and Sam Baldock out injured. Chris Hughton may turn to Izzy Brown, Jamie Murphy or even youngster James Tilley to fill the void left by Hemed, currently Albion’s only fit out and out senior striker.
The Seagulls take on Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium this Sunday (1 October) at noon.
