Man Utd midfielder Fellaini rejects spitting claims

Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini has told manager David Moyes that he did not spit at Manchester City’s Pablo Zabaleta during the game between the sides on Tuesday, writes BBC Sport.

The FA has asked for additional television footage over the alleged incident, which apparently came in the immediate aftermath of Fellaini being booked for a elbow on the right-back.

The request from the governing body comes after a video was posted online, one which suggested that the Belgian had stood over Zabaleta before spitting at him. However, Moyes has revealed that Fellaini denies the allegations. "Marouane is adamant that at no time did he do that,’ said the under-fire boss. ‘We'll work with the FA if that's what we have to do to clear it."

This incident comes just weeks after Hull City winger George Boyd was controversially given a three-match ban by the FA for a spitting incident involving another Man City player, goalkeeper Joe Hart. The punishment was only handed out after a disciplinary panel viewed slow-motion video footage. Should Fellaini be found guilty of spitting, then he would be likely to face the same outcome.
