West Brom: Fans rage at the FA as Said Benrahma avoids ban despite Matheus Pereira similarities - West Brom

Lots of West Brom fans are furious with the FA as Brentford star Said Benrahma avoided punishment from the football governing body for elbowing Hull City’s Stephen Kingsley despite Mathus Pereira serving a three-match ban for a similar act.

The Brazilian attacker missed the Baggies last three games as the 23-year-old was found guilty by the FA for elbowing Joe Allen in West Brom’s 1-0 defeat to Stoke City last month (per BBC Sport).
