    LONDON — The English Football Association has banned Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini and Leicester defender Robert Huth for three matches following their clash during a Premier League game.

    Fellaini reacted to getting his hair pulled by Huth by appearing to elbow his opponent as they jostled during a set-piece in Sunday's (Monday, Manila time) 1-1 draw. The incident wasn't seen by the match officials but was caught on video.

    The sanctions rule both players out for the rest of the Premier League season.
