Fellaini set for long ban after apparent headbutt

Everton midfielder Marouane Fellaini could be hit with a lengthy

suspension after video footage appears to show him headbutting

Stoke defender Ryan Shawcross to the ground during a Premier League

match on Saturday.

The two players were jostling during a second-half corner when

Fellaini lunged at Shawcross before attempting to make a run for

the ball. Match officials missed the incident.

Everton manager David Moyes says ”I’ve seen it, it’s a terrible

thing to do and I expect him to be punished.”

The Football Association will review the incident on Monday

before deciding whether to charge the Belgium international, who

has arguably been Everton’s best player this season.

Moyes says ”I’ve told him it’s not acceptable and whatever he

gets, he and us deserve it.”

The match at Britannia Stadium finished 1-1.
