The FA have banned Javier Mascherano, the Liverpool midfielder, for a further two matches and fined him £15,000.
Mascherano was initially banned for one match after being shown two yellow cards at Old Trafford on March 23. The ban was then increased to three matches because Mascherano continued to protest after he was shown the red card.
The Argentinian, who was suspended for the derby victory over Everton as a result of the dismissal, will now also miss this weekend’s clash with Arsenal and the home game with Blackburn on April 13
Liverpool will consider their options before deciding whether to appeal.
