Manchester United striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic claimed Tyrone Mings jumped "into my elbow" and the Bournemouth defender denied deliberately stamping on the Swedish star's head during a 1-1 draw at Old Trafford.

Both players appeared fortunate to escape red cards for the incidents, which came during the first-half of Bournemouth's 1-1 Premier League draw at Old Trafford.

Ibrahimovic's penalty miss and United's inability to defeat a Cherries side that played 45 minutes with 10 men were overshadowed by incidents that resulted in no immediate punishment for either Ibrahimovic or Mings.

However the Football Association may apply retrospective action should referee Kevin Friend's match report not include any mention of the incidents, or if it requests a review of what happened.

Mings stood on Ibrahimovic moments before the 35-year-old's elbow struck the Bournemouth centre-back's head. The second incident prompted Andrew Surman to shove Ibrahimovic over, resulting in his dismissal, once referee Friend eventually realised he was brandishing a second yellow card at the Bournemouth midfielder.

Surman may not be the only player to serve a suspension following this, yet both Ibrahimovic - who saw Artur Boruc save his 71st-minute penalty - and Mings denied intending to hurt the other.

"Listen, what happens on the field stays on the field," Ibrahimovic told BBC Sport.

"I'm not someone who attacks someone off the field. You have the TV, you can see the images. I jump up and jump high and he (Mings) jumps into my elbow.

"It is not my intention to hurt someone. I didn't know about the stamping on the head, if it was him it was him."

Mings also sought to absolve himself of any blame.

Asked by Sky Sports if he purposely stamped, Mings said: "Not at all, I would never do that. That's not in my game. Hard and fair is how I like to tackle but off-the-ball stuff like that isn't in my game.

"He (Ibrahimovic) is who he is, he's a good player, he's a physical player. I knew what sort of battle I was going to be in for coming here. And that's what we had all day, it was a battle.

"There was maybe an elbow when the ball came in after, I didn't see it, I felt it. But what happened after that with Surman getting sent off, I didn't see it."
