Everton midfielder Tim Cahill has been suspended for three matches after being found guilty of violent conduct.
Cahill contested the charge which related to an altercation with Newcastle defender Celestine Babayaro at Goodison Park on Sunday.
Babayaro had already admitted the offence and also received a three-game ban from the Football Association disciplinary commission.
Neither player was punished during the game which was won 1-0 by Everton.
But the match official reviewed the footage with officials from Soho Square and decided to take action against both players.
Cahill is not allowed to appeal against the suspension which will take place with immediate effect.
The Australian will miss the trips to Blackburn and Manchester United, and the home match against West Ham.
