No action will be taken against West Brom defender Ahmed Hegazi following a clash with Liverpool striker Danny Ings at the Hawthorns on Saturday.
Hegazi and Ings had a coming together in the first half with the Egypt international appearing to strike out at the Reds forward.
Referee Stuart Attwell and his assistants did not see the incident. Three independent former referees on the panel watched the incident and reported back without consultation. There was no unanimous decision meaning there will be no further action.
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp said after the game: "The situation with Hegazi and Ings, I do not know.
"My analyst showed it to me. I do not have to say anything about that. I do not know why he did it, there was no reason for that, but he did it."
Ings, who was in for the rested Roberto Firmino, had earlier given Liverpool a fourth minute lead but Salomon Rondon's late header saw struggling West Bromwich Albion come from two goals down to draw 2-2.
It was Ings first goal since October 2015.
