Marouane Fellaini pulls Matteo Guendouzi's hair

Hair-gate marred events at Old Trafford as Marouane Fellaini pulled Matteo Guendouzi's hair in a freakish moment, and the long-haired Arsenal starlet has since reacted.

Indeed, apparently overcome by a sudden bout of hair envy (having recently had his own afro sheared off), Fellaini set about unceremoniously stopping Matteo Guendouzi in his tracks by grabbing a handful of his counterpart's own tousled locks.

There have been suggestions that Fellaini might face a ban, but the French teenager has played down the incident.

"There was a little hint of jealousy I think", he hilariously said.

'Maybe he can't accept the fact that he chose to go back to short hair!'

Six yellow cards were dished out in the feisty game at Old Trafford but somehow Fellaini, on as a second half substitute, did not receive a caution for the foul.

Unlike the Huth incident, this foul was seen by referee Andre Mariner and the player was spoken to.

Then Leicester City defender Robert Huth was suspended for three games when he pulled Fellaini's hair back in 2016.

Fellaini had come on for Marcos Rojo in the 72nd minute, a few minutes after Arsenal had briefly taken the lead only for Jesse Lingard to equalise.
