Marouane Fellaini has apologised for the incident that occurred during the 1-1 draw with Stoke City.
The Blues midfielder was involved in an incident with Ryan Shawcross in the second half during which he made contact with his head on the Stoke defender.
"I apologise completely to Ryan Shawcross, my team mates and to our fans at the game," said Fellaini.
"There was a lot of pushing and pulling going on inside the Stoke penalty area and I didn't feel I was getting any protection from the officials.
"Nevertheless I know I shouldn't have done what I did.
"I have also apologised to the manager and the staff. I have no excuses, I was disappointed with the way I was being treated and I lost my temper, which was unprofessional of me."
Everton drew 1-1 at the Britannia Stadium after taking the lead in the first half.
