The FA have confirmed they are looking into the video footage which appears to show Marouane Fellaini spitting at Pablo Zabaleta's face during Tuesday's match between Manchester United and Manchester City.
The Man U midfielder was carded by referee Michael Oliver for a flagrant first-half elbow to the face of his City opponent during the Manchester showdown.
A flop and a sop.
The FA could now look into this incident in much the same way as they did when retroactive punishment was on Hull City's George Boyd's spitting incident earlier this month.
Boyd was subsequently banned for three matches despite appealing the charge.
Here's Marouane's original infraction before lobbing the gob.
