The Belgian was at his aggressive best during the derby, which ended in a 2-1 defeat for his side despite a spirited second half performance.
However, he may just have gone too far.
An image has started circulating on social media in which the 28-year-old is clearly seen spitting in the direction of Manchester City forward Nolito in a rather gross act of aggression.
Fellaini has drawn the wrath of City fans on social media since the mammoth game, after an image emerged of defender Aleksandar Kolarov missing a tooth after a clash with the Manchester United midfielder.
The Citizens’ fans are now calling for the FA to take action against the Belgian, and have been constantly tweeting the aforementioned picture at the FA’s Official twitter account, demanding a ban be imposed.
City were without Sergio Kun Aguero for the derby due to a similar act of aggression. The striker elbowed West Ham defender Winston Reid across the face and, while the referee missed the incident, video evidence of the clash emerged and the Argentine was subsequently banned for three games.
City fans are now trying to get Fellaini suspended on the same grounds – that the incident was missed by the referee but caught on camera.
The FA have not responded to the tweets as of now, but Fellaini could be in big trouble should they decide to take action.
