With Marouane Fellaini elbowing Robert Huth in the jaw during Man Utd 1-1 Leicester, there was unsurprisingly a spate of jokes to round up.

The Belgian has forged something of a reputation for using his arm joints to malevolent effect, and this latest high-profile misadventure seems certain to land him in hot water.

A suspension may yet rule him out of the FA Cup final against Crystal Palace, not that this would concern the sections of the Old Trafford faithful who can’t stand the sight of Fellaini in a red shirt.

With Louis van Gaal claiming it to be a natural reaction to having his hair pulled, here were the best Fellaini elbows Huth jokes:

Anyone who has seen the film Ratatouille knows that Fellaini wasn't in control of his elbow during that hair-pull.

Are we just gonna ignore the fact that Robert Huth has a jaw made of concrete? He didn't even flinch https://t.co/6O1sZdylL2

Commentators appear to be blaming Fellaini for Huth pulling his hair, because he's 'got so much of it'.

Fellaini gets subbed off, with his final act on the pitch being a blatant handball. Poignant.
