Cabaye escaped punishment from Chris Foy but is facing a three-game ban for the kick that left El-Abd with a bloody lip.

Manchester City striker Mario Balotelli was handed a four-game ban last week for his stamp on Scott Parker after Howard Webb missed the incident.

El-Abd said: 'Cabaye caught me. I'm a big boy and I can deal with it. I think he knew what he was doing.'
