Mario Baolotelli could well face retrospective action after appearing to stamp on the head of Scott Parker. Bookmakers, William Hill, are offering odds of 1/8 that Balotelli receives a four match ban from the FA and 9/2 that he does not. With Balotelli already having one red card to his name, William Hill are odds on, at 4/7 that he does not receive another this season, although he is 9/4 to get one more red card and 7/2 to get two or more.
Balotelli is a volatile character and is always likely to be in the headlines but we think that while it is likely that he will receive a ban this time around, it could be the shot in the arm that turns his season around, said Hills spokesman Joe Crilly.
Will Balotelli receive a ban relating to Scott Parker Incident on Sunday: 1/8 yes; 9/2 no
Balotelli Red cards this season (only includes red cards shown on pitch and not retrospective bans): 4/7 one; 9/4 two; 7/2 three or more
