Yohan Cabaye could face ban

Newcastle midfielder Yohan Cabaye could face a three-match ban after appearing to kick Brighton defender Adam El-Abd in the face during Saturday's FA Cup tie at the Amex Stadium.

Newcastle United midfielder Yohan Cabaye could be hit with a three-match ban for kicking Brighton's Adam El-Abd in the face during Saturday's FA Cup fourth round tie at the Amex Stadium.

El-Abd was left with a cut lip after he appeared to have been kicked by the Frenchman in the second half of Brighton's 1-0 win.

The Seagulls defender has revealed that referee Lee Probert told him that he would look at footage of the incident after the match.

"I think it was frustration on his part," said El-Abd. "He had a little kick out at me. I'm a big boy and I can deal with it, but I think he knew what he was doing.

"The ref said to me at the time that he was going to have a look at it again on the monitor.

"It was pretty clear and the ref could see I had blood on my lip. It didn't magic itself onto my lip."

Brighton will travel to Liverpool in the next round of the competition.
