​West Ham lose Masuaku to six game ban for spitting

West Ham defender Arthur Masuaku will serve a mandatory six-game ban for spitting at an opponent, the Football Association has confirmed.

The Frenchman reacted to a challenge from Nick Powell in the Hammers' FA Cup loss to Wigan on Saturday.

The 24 year old later issued an apology on social media, saying his actions were "unacceptable and out of character".

He will not be available for selection until West Ham host Manchester United at London Stadium on 18 March.
