Studs Alert: Benoit Assou-Ekotto

The following incident occurred during the EPL match between Tottenham Hotspur and Wigan Athletic on Tuesday 31 January 2012. The match finished 3—1.

In the 73' minute Spurs defender Benoit Assou-Ekotto (white 32) goes over the top of the ball when challenging against Wigan's Franco Di Santo (blue 9). Here are the freeze frames:

Referee Lee Probert and his AR did not see any serious foul play when Spurs defender Benoit Assou-Ekotto challenged Wigan's Di Santo.

'Allo 'allo, what have we here then?
Let me have a closer look ... (because it makes me appear like I am paying close attention)

Can and should retrospective action be taken out by the FA Disciplinary Committee on Tottenham Hotspur's Benoit Assou-Ekotto? We have already seen the FA taking retrospective action against Newcastle's Yohan Cabaye.
