Fellaini and Huth charged by FA

Pair to face retrospective action

Marouane Fellaini and Robert Huth have been charged by the Football Association following their clash in Manchester United's 1-1 draw with Leicester City at Old Trafford.

The first-half incident took place in the Foxes' penalty area and saw the Belgian react to Huth pulling his hair by elbowing the German.

Referee Michael Oliver took no action at the time but with television replays capturing the incident in full, the pair have been charged with violent conduct by the Football Association.

The pair gave until 6pm on Wednesdat to respond to the charge.

Violent conduct carries an automatic three-match suspension and if both are convicted of the charge, neither will see any league action again this campaign.

As Leicester have only two games left in the season, Huth would also miss the first game of 2016-17. Fellaini however, would be available for selection for his side's FA Cup final clash with Crystal Palace.

United manager Louis Van Gaal tried to downplay his player's part in the clash, claiming afterwards that the midfielder's reaction to Huth's provocation was a natural one.

Claudio Ranieri meanwhile was more critical of Fellaini, suggesting his actions were not "a good show".
