Raheem Sterling will face no further action after a review into an incident in which he allegedly threw an object back into the crowd during Chelsea’s Premier League clash against Tottenham Hotspur.
The Athletic previously reported that the Football Association were reviewing the incident but they have since concluded their investigation and the 28-year-old will face no punishment.
The incident occurred shortly after Cole Palmer successfully levelled the scoreline for Chelsea with a penalty in the first half, prompted by Cristian Romero’s red card for a challenge on Enzo Fernandez.
Sterling helped Chelsea secure a 4-1 victory on Monday, in a game which saw five disallowed goals and two red cards.
Despite an improved start to the season, the former Liverpool and Manchester City player has been unable to force his way back into Gareth Southgate’s England setup, missing out on a call-up to England’s squad for their European Championship qualifiers against Malta and North Macedonia later this month.
Chelsea, meanwhile, are next in action this Sunday against Sterling’s former club Manchester City in the Premier League.
Is Sterling being unfairly overlooked by Southgate, or have England simply moved on?
