Fellaini to escape retrospective action for pulling Guendouzi’s hair

Marouane Fellaini will escape retrospective action for pulling Matteo Guendouzi’s hair in Manchester United’s 2-2 draw with Arsenal on Wednesday evening.

The United midfielder yanked the Arsenal youngster’s hair in the latter stages of the game.

Referee Andre Marriner blew for a foul but failed to book the Belgium midfielder.

And Fellaini, who replaced Jesse Lingard in the 72nd minute, will face no further action for the incident.

United came from behind twice to salvage a draw against Unai Emery’s side at Old Trafford, in a game where Marriner brandished six yellow cards.

Fellaini has been punished by the FA for similar offences in the past.

The 31-year-old elbowed Robert Huth after the German pulled his hair in May 2016.

The pair were subsequently banned for three games.
