Robert Lewandowski: Banned for three matches

Lewandowski had put his side ahead after quarter of an hour but things quickly turned sour for Dortmund as they conceded two quick goals before the Poland striker was sent off in the 31st minute of the match for a crude challenge on Per Ciljan Skjelbred.

Following the defeat, Dortmund have all but surrendered the title as they fell 15 points behind Bayern Munich.

Lewandowski has 24 hours to appeal against the verdict.

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
