Fellaini gets three-match ban
by Ed Bottomley

There will be no appeal against the red card shown by referee Phil Dowd to Marouane Fellaini for ‘serious foul play’. Fellaini was brought down from behind in the 86th minute by Bolton’s Paul Robinson in what looked a clear foul but retaliated by kicking out as the players tangled on the ground and the referee, who was well positioned, had no hesitation in awarding a straight red card. After the game David Moyes conceded that “It was the right decision, Marouane retaliated and it was stupid.”

Fellaini will now miss three matches: Arsenal – home (Sunday 14 November); Sunderland – away (Monday 22 November); West Brom – home (Saturday 27 November).
