It came as Spurs’ Erik Lamela, Sergio Reguilon and Giovani Lo Celso also broke rules with West Ham’s Manuel Lanzini.

So did Fulham’s Aleksandar Mitrovic and Crystal Palace’s Luka Milivojevic.

Lineker agreed with Wright, who raged against the “blatant disregard” and declared: “There should be something done about that.”

Mendy admitted three pals attended his private bash and has since apologised.

Politicians called on the Premier League to ban footballers if they breach rules.

Tory MP Andrew Bridgen said: “These people are supposed to be role models.”
