Fellaini probed over claim he spat at City defender Zabaleta
Mar 28, 2014 at 8:30a ET
Footage on YouTube has emerged appearing to show Manchester United midfielder Fellaini spitting near to Zabaleta's head while the City defender lay on the floor following a clash between the pair.
The FA is aware of the clip and is now considering whether it should charge Fellaini for misconduct.
It is understood referee Michael Oliver did not mention the alleged spit in his match report, but the FA can retrospectively punish Fellaini if it thinks he is guilty.
The FA will request clearer footage of the incident from broadcasters Sky before making a decision on the matter early next week.
Oliver booked Fellaini moments before the alleged spit towards Zabaleta for an elbow on the Argentinian full-back.
After the 3-0 win, Zabaleta claimed Fellaini was lucky to stay on the pitch.
"I was elbowed by Fellaini. It was a red card," he said
