Arsenal had a 2-2 draw against Manchester United in the Premier League match. The Gunners’ midfield was pushing forward in the 86th minute when Fellaini dragged Matteo Guendouzi back by his hair and a free kick was awarded. Arsenal fans are still angry about the incident and call for him to be banned.
The Belgian escaped a sending off but Match of the Day pundit Danny Murphy believes he was lucky to stay on the pitch.
“He has got away with one, hasn’t he? It is a sending off by the letter of the law,” said Murphy. “It is stupid from Fellaini and really could have cost his team.”
Here is what fans say on social media about Fellaini’s silly foul.

Madness if Fellaini doesn't get a ban for basically assaulting @MatteoGuendouzi in that match.
