Man City's Vieira to serve three match ban

The FA have confirmed Patrick Vieira will serve a three-game ban after the Manchester City midfielder opted not to contest a charge of violent conduct. The veteran Frenchman was charged after video evidence was reviewed and will now miss Barclays Premier League games against Liverpool and Chelsea and the FA Cup replay against the Potters.

Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini said: "Patrick made a mistake as far as I am concerned.

"He will now miss three important matches. It is a big problem for me, as he is experienced, and for Patrick as he needs games."
