Former Premier League referee Dermot Gallagher has his say on the Fellaini-Guendouzi incident
- The Belgian was booked for pulling the Arsenal man's hair on Wednesday
- However, Gallagher insists the United midfielder should've been sent off
Speaking to Sky Sports, Gallagher said: "I think the referee gives a foul and can't see the hair pull, because if he does then it has to be a red card for violent conduct.
"Robert Huth was banned for three matches for pulling Fellaini's hair in 2016, so the FA obviously see it as violent conduct."
Pulling a player by the hair is apparently something that’s not punished, even when the guy that previously pulled Fellaini’s hair (Huth) got a 3 game retrospective ban.— Craig Houlden (@CraigTheHost) December 6, 2018

The Belgian is set to escape retrospective action for pulling Matteo Guendouzi's hair in the second half of the 2-2 draw against Arsenal at Old Trafford. United's midfielder tried to stop the Frenchman from rushing towards the penalty box and decided there would be nothing more effective than fouling in quite an extraordinary way.
