Arsenal midfielder Guendouzi mocks hair-pulling Fellaini: Jealous now?

Arsenal midfielder Matteo Guendouzi has enjoyed a dig at Manchester United rival Marouane Fellaini after Wednesday's 2-2 draw.

Fellaini was caught grabbing the Frenchman's hair to stop Guendouzi's run late in United's draw with Arsenal at Old Trafford.

In reaction, he told RMC: "There was a little hint of jealously I think. He does not digest, perhaps, being short-haired."

Reports suggest that Fellaini will escape retrospective punishment for the offence because it was clearly seen by referee Andre Marriner, who gave a foul but no further action.

In May 2016, Leicester City defender Robert Huth was banned for three games for a tug on Fellaini's hair.
