Everton midfielder Marouane Fellaini will miss Everton's Christmas fixture schedule after being retrospectively charged with violent conduct by the FA following Saturday's game at Stoke City.

The charge is in relation to an incident in the 59th minute involving Fellaini and Stoke City's Ryan Shawcross, which was not seen by the match officials, but caught on video.

The player and the Club have accepted the charge and the 25-year-old will be suspended for three games against West Ham, Wigan and Chelsea.

Referee Mark Halsey confirmed that he saw two further incidents in the 71st and 91st minutes, also involving Fellaini and Shawcross, neither of which he deemed to be violent conduct.

Fellaini issued an apology shortly after the match, saying: "I apologise completely to Ryan Shawcross, my team mates and to our fans at the game.

"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."
