Three-match bans for Fellaini and Huth

Pair accepted violent conduct charge

Marouane Fellaini and Robert Huth will both serve three-match bans after accepting a charge of violent conduct.

The pair were charged following an incident during the first half of Manchester United's 1-1 draw with Leicester City at Old Trafford when Fellaini elbowed Huth after the Leicester defender pulled his hair.

Referee Michael Oliver took no action at the time but with television replays capturing the incident in full.

Although both players accepted the charge, Huth argued that the standard three-match ban would be excessive but his claim was rejected by the Independent Regulatory Panel.

Fellaini will miss United's games against Norwich, West Ham and Bournemouth but he will be available for the FA Cup final against Crystal Palace, while Huth will sit out Leicester's games against Everton and Chelsea.
