People Want Benjamin Mendy Banned 'For A Long Time' After Eric Lamela Incident

Premier League champions Manchester City picked up another three points against Tottenham on Monday night after Riyad Mahrez's early strike earned them a deserved victory.

But an incident involving their left-back Benjamin Mendy has somewhat put a dampener on the performance at Wembley. In the 91st minute, Mendy looked to throw a punch at Tottenham's Eric Lamela.

Thankfully the Frenchman missed completely, instead swiping mid-air.

It went unnoticed by the officials but many believe the World Cup winner should receive retrospective action for his reaction.

One twitter user said: "Oh and on a side note if Mendy doesn't get a ban for that attempted punch on Lamela I'd be shocked! Absolutely disgusting behaviour from a professional footballer!"

While another said: "Benjamin Mendy, beyond having two poor mistakes today, should've seen a straight red for this. Cannot even imagine if it landed; could've seriously hurt Lamela. He deserves a ban if there's retrospective action."
