Manchester United and Fellaini escape Uefa censure

Manchester United will not be punished by Uefa after some of their fans sang offensive Hillsborough disaster chants in a Europa League defeat at Liverpool, reports BBC Sport.

United’s Marouane Fellaini has also escaped sanction for an alleged elbow on Emre Can in the final moments.

Uefa decided to take no action as neither incident was mentioned in the match officials’ report.

Liverpool won the first leg of their last-16 tie 2-0 at Anfield and the return takes place on Thursday.

Officials are set to pay closer attention to chants at Old Trafford.
